Warmth and sunshine

It made it over freezing today for the first time in what feels like months (but surely can’t have been, right?!)

39 degrees as a matter of fact – that’s downright balmy!

And it’s slowly melting which is filling up the local creeks:

By afternoon, that snow was off the top of the rocks.

This warm up is also definitely a plus for my neighbor, this is his house:

Some of those icicles are about 2 feet long… not good, but the (relatively) warm temperature and sunshine shrank them a little.

Anyway, it was fun being outside on a day like today after so many super-cold, snowy and cloudy days…

and even though it’s supposed to get colder and snow again.

Ah, such is winter!
