Especially when that day brings this... rain. Snow is kind of funny (for those of you who don't live with it.) Even when the temp rises, it can hang around for awhile. It's white and reflects heat, y'know? But throw in a little rain, and it goes pretty fast.
And we had some funny weather. I looked out the window of my office/craft room and saw this. Can you tell what's happening?
Take a closer look, with a darker background...
We live in a basin, surrounding a large lake. Seems like no matter what the weather pattern is on the large scale, our weather always seems to come at us from the lake. Something about the way the wind swirls around, I guess. So I took a look in that direction from another window. Ahhhh. Looks ominous, yah?
Yep. More snow. And boy did it get dark when those thick clouds rolled in. But that's okay. I love watching lights come on around the lake.
But the thermometer was rising, and the icicles out my bedroom window were dripping.
I thought you might like seeing the progression of the snow melting.
It's sad, though ;D
Here's the winter wonderland, all snowy, clean, white and bright.
Ah, still snowy, but the road is looking gray and mushy as the weather begins to warm. And the snow has begun to drop from the trees.
Definitely warmer. Don't know if you can tell, but the snow looks heavier. Thicker. It compacts as it melts. Did you see the raindrops on the window? The snow is saturated.
Until, finally.... blaaahhhhhh. At least the roads are clear again.
