|The thaw begins....|
Here are two pictures, taken one day apart, showing the same general area of the back yard.
|24 hours later.....|
This was a light, powdery snow, albeit fairly deep for our neck of the woods, but the six inches of snow in my gauge melted down to only 0.55" of water content.
|The back of the house is north-facing, and the patio receives a two-story accumulation of snow and ice from the roof.|
Nevertheless, once the snow melted, we see--undeterred and undamaged--a promise of Spring!
