Tuesday. Ground nearly bare of snow. Pleasant day with a strong south wind. Skated, though the ice was soft in spots. http://www.outriderbooks.com/oop/Thoreau218.html

What a solid winter we have had! No thaw of any consequence; no bare ground since December but an unmelting mass of snow and ice, hostile to all greenness. Have not seen a green radical leaf even, as usual, all being covered up.

This has been the most perfect afternoon in the year. The air quite warm enough, perfectly still and dry and clear, and not a cloud in the sky. Scarcely the song of a cricket is heard to disturb the stillness. When they ceased their song I do not know. (October 31, 1850) http://www.outriderbooks.com/oop/Thoreau1031.html
