The Snow is Going

There is a layer of ice on top of the snow, since we had rain one night. 
There are these wild "ice flakes" laying across the rotting snow in the ditches.
Scott has been pointing out how quickly snow melts as soon as a spot of dirt or anything dark appears. This dry brown leaf has absorbed enough heat to sink a deep hole into a tire track.


  1. another nature lesson; I just don't see those things that are right before my eyes.

  2. It has been slow going here with the melt. We had a set back with a big storm last week, but with the rain it has mostly gone. We are all wishing hoping and praying for some sun and warmer temperatures!
