Well not really the grass - not growing either. What I was actually doing was watching the driveway dry as the sun came out, way ahead of schedule. And watching didn't work. That is although there was progress almost from moment to moment, like the hands of a clock moving, the change was nevertheless too slow for my eyes to see it. I was watching out of relief that the freezing rain had stopped, that the ice on wires and tree limbs would get no thicker. Last night while meditating (and therefore being quiet enough to hear) every so often there would be a sharp crack and then a thud as an overloaded branch broke and fell. Sirens rang in the distance. The lights flickered and several times went out completely, but only for a moment. We were lucky. This morning there is news that the power is out for half of New Hampshire, and many areas of New England and northern NY State have been hard hit.
