This March snow behaves like Lieutenant Columbo.))
You think it is gone for good, but it comes back again and again. Yesterday there were puddles everywhere, and streams of meltwater flowed. It is heavy snowfall today. There are drifts all around.

My friend is fond of skiing. So she is happy. But I'm not due to the fact that yesterday I accidently got my feet wet in those puddles and fell ill. Now I have fever and bad cough. I take my medicine, drink tea with raspberry and read a book. Because of my high temperature I'm not very smart right now. Therefore, I'm reading a book for young children. The book is called "Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It's amazing! )) It is like an encyclopedia of American life outside cities in the 19th century. I learned about many things that I didn’t even guess about. For example, how they used to churn butter, make the bullets and collect the maple sap.
I wonder if modern American children read such books or they did not.
