Yesterday the weather warmed up just enough to melt things a little. I dislike these ping-pong temperatures, these wishy-washy is-it-winter? or is-it-not-winter? days. But this was truly amazing. Too bad I couldn't have taken the photo from directly above (alas, although I have been accused of being a space cadet I have not yet discovered how to defy gravity).
My photos don't do the sight justice. But take my word for it when I say it was like the ice/snow was impersonating the Wicked Witch of the West and wailing "I'm m-m-m-e-l-t-i-n-g!" Within half an hour of this moment all trace of snow was gone. Not likely it'll stay gone for long. I'm sure there'll be a sequel any day now.
