New normal?

I took this picture on April 14th.  In Minnesota, we’re used to April snow.  It’s normal.  Normal has changed every day since then.  And I think it will keep changing.  It will have a cascading effect over everything.  We’re choosing what is essential and losing track of time, like children.  With our children.  The silver lining of an April snow, aside from keeping the pollen count down for a few more days, is that you can manage.  You think you can’t stand one more day of winter but then find that you can.  You stay inside a little longer and leave the house only if it’s essential.  You have the strength to be normal, whatever that means.
