I was grumpy about the prospective snow today, but it’s so pretty that I’m happy it’s here

two of my seeds have sprouted! Spring is here!

This morning I waited for several minutes for a stoplight to change so I could cross west 7th, but there was no car to trigger the change. So the cross street light just kept cycling through green/ped-go, green/ped-countdown, green/ped-go. This is on a bicycle boulevard.

these ice sheets on the bike paths are becoming kind of fun in the morning: cracks and bubbles!

Is it spring yet? I want to plant flowers

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
