What Next?

 

The melt continued until the roof was mostly clear.  One valley area that gets the Sun late in the day did not get enough energy to fully melt.  Then we got some rain to help out.  Then it turned cold.  The big storm today missed us being far to the South.  Some minor snow activity can be expected over the next week.  At least, we got the blacktop driveway back after a couple months of white and ice.

As the place melted we did get one squirrel checking out the feeders.  He got a little to take home.  He was not one of the crew here during the summer.  The new guy he is called.  Some deer have been wondering around, too.  The Gang of Seven seems to find the melted area of interest.

Warm Spell hits 40s and up.

 

The weather is turning warm to the max this seek.  The ice coating is melting away and the roofs should soon be back to their human made colors.  It is a bit wet as all that melts.

Conveniently they have snow scheduled for one this inconvenient ice-snow is gone.  Ands showing a sense of change, the snow is not scheduled for Tuesday as most has been.

Note that I bought a sled on sale today.  Next row up was loaded with summer gardening supplies ready to go.  Of course, I use the sled for pulling the chain saw and its fuels and tools around during the summer.  Wore the bottom off the old one.
