Mixed messages left as winter fades away

 
Just when everyone thought winter had left and spring was here to stay, Pullman residents woke up to a ground covered in snow.  The week’s forecast has a bit of snow for Wednesday, but Thursday and Friday are looking better with a high of 47 and a low of 34 degrees.

According to the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil’s shadow, we still have a few more weeks of winter.
 
This morning’s chilly temperatures and light snow offered one passerby a highly artistic opportunity.  Hopefully a sign of winter’s last greeting to the Pullman campus.  (Photo courtesy of Tim Marsh, University Relations.)
