One year ago today we were in the midst of the Mississippi River Spring flood. See here for what I wrote on April 2, 2011. Today I walked to the nearby Caribou Coffee Shop to meet a student for a conference -- hey why have both of us drive to the campus and pay to park when we can do this, and it makes the trip about 4 miles shorter for her too!
When coming back home I noticed that spring has appeared in the flower boxes.
And what can say spring more than the emerging crop of dandelions!
