Apparently Old Man Winter decided to take a break, it’s warmed up to nearly 60 degrees yesterday and today. It is still February in Northeast Ohio though, I’m sure Old Man Winter won’t be gone for long.
In the meantime, the several feet of snow we’ve accumulated – much of which has sat undisturbed in the shade on the deck – has finally started to melt. Today’s image of the day looks like it could be something from an ice field at the foot of a glacier, but in reality it’s just the remnants of the two feet of snow on the deck.
If you look closely, those needles you see on top of the melting ice are the remains of our Christmas tree, which ended it’s faithful service by being unceremoniously yanked out the back door and drug over the deck. The fact that those needles are on top of the melting snow, and that we disposed of the tree over a month ago, ought to tell you something about just how much snow and ice we’ve had, and how long it’s lasted.
