It’s amazing what a week of rain and milder weather will do to a foot of stubborn snow. After two full months on the ground, it’s almost all gone! And what a revelation – the giant white lump in the backyard has morphed back into a barbecue grill. Maybe I’ll even use it this weekend.

I felt a rush of emotions standing in front of the Idaho State Capitol on Saturday morning. On a strictly practical note, I was glad to have brought an umbrella, as wet, heavy snow coated the crowd of about 5,000.
On a personal note, I realized this was the first protest ever that I had attended as a participant, rather than covering it as a reporter.
