Small pleasures

Seeing what I’ve decided to call post tracks: the tracks that go through the snow from house to house in straight or nearly straight lines. Forget about shoveled sidewalks: postal carriers know that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line through the snow.

I normally shovel a path across our front lawn for our mail carrier to save him some steps, but this year the snow is just too deep. He's been walking up from the street.

I thought of making a path, but the drifted snow on our neighbor’s side was too much. Our carrier just walked through it anyway. And we saw him wearing shorts a couple of days ago.
