From the Editors

March is never really a warm month in Rhode Island, but it’s definitely the wrong month for a snow day. We didn’t even get to play in the snow—by the time we had turned our pajamas right side in, the snow had turned to freezing rain, and a river of slush was running down our block.

But as they asy, all good things must come to an end. The snow turns to sleet, Nice Slice is closing, so is Paper Nautilus, and as for us? We’re staying snuggled under our covers until spring.

See you then.
