What fresh snow is this?

(Feb 14 2018 12:38 p.m.)

From where we left off, the snow and ice were vanishing and for the day the clouds were parting.

(Feb 14 12:39 p.m.)

The trees were free from ice coating their branches.

And then…

(Feb 18 6:28 a.m.)

It dumped, all overnight on the weekend.  I heard it was going to snow, but I was surprised, nonetheless— just how much it dumped.

(Feb 19 1:32 p.m.)

And then the climate got to be so warm that by the next day, the white stuff melted and vanished from the trees… or, all but vanished because what collected on the ground is really wet and clumpy.

(Feb 19 1:40 p.m.)

And slush.  It’s a good thing I have better shoes, because my feet would be completely soaked wearing the old ones.  Walking out there today, your feet just… sink into water, pretty much.

(Feb 19 1:34 p.m.)

And the full-blown puddles toward the end of the driveway grew.  A tiny river ran down the side of the street(s) again.

Basking in the sunlight. (Feb 19 1:41 p.m.)

I may have to work around the snow puddles to get my walk on— my (slushy) constitutional, but at least the trees are free!

(Feb 19 1:42 p.m.)

It was warm enough that you can see the dripping in the above photo.  I could hear thuds on the back porch recently that may as well be what’s left of the icicles falling. …I’m not sure the raccoons would want to bother with these conditions.

(Jan 19 5:04 p.m.)

And now that the bottoms of my pants are dry, I can go to bed at a more normal time.  My circadian rhythm had drifted into to the point of inversion— going to sleep around noon.  It doesn’t get any worse than that. …Or maybe it can.  I’m thinking I don’t want to find out.

Well, until next time, Good night!

  1. Great pictures, Adam. Here in New Mexico, everything is brown and today it is very windy.

    My husband has the worst sleep patterns I have ever seen. He has something called a non-twenty-four hour sleep disorder. Usually, only blind people have that. But my husband is not blind.

    We have learned over the years that the most important thing is not what time he goes to sleep. The most important thing is that he gets plenty of sleep, at least eight hours, after falling asleep.

    So good night, young friend. Sleep well and sweet dreams.
