I had determined not to mention snow again this year, but Ginger had to ask if our snow had gone away. Of course I must answer; it would be impolite not to. As of yesterday, you can see that it had pretty much gone away.
Just kidding. Obviously.
Although the snow has disappeared by the end of March in the past two years (compare to March 09 on the left), this winter has left a much bigger heap than normal, so it lingers. However, it really has subsided quite a bit in the past week because although the temperatures haven't soared, most days are reaching above the freezing point. A day or two or rain and several days of bright sun have also contributed to the decline of white cover. We have yet to experience those one or two really balmy days that sometimes grace us at this time of year, but when we do, I trust that the pile will be reduced even more significantly.
I'm sure that this photo will help y'all to appreciate your local environment this weekend. You're welcome. :)
