A bit of melting started happening yesterday as the sun carried some power even though it was still only -15C (5F) outside.
By week’s end we are supposed to go up by about 12° to -3C (27F) or so. That will be nice!
Happy Sunday, and don’t forget to change your clocks. Which reminds me, one of Dalí’s melting clock paintings is probably very appropriate today.
Persistence of Memory – Salvador Dalí
These just look like they are in outer space.
Beautiful ice diamonds from Stephen Gingold. I hope you visit to take a look at his beautiful photography collection.
We’re experiencing a warming period and all the snow from last week has softened and is beginning to melt.
This likely means that we will get more snow, but in the meantime, it’s sunny!
I hope the melting starts again soon.
Yes, spring icicles are springing up, or rather, down, everywhere.
Smallish icicles hanging from the house eave.
We’re supposed to have warmish weather over the next couple of days, so these icies will grow a lot. For safety, I’ve knocked down the ones over the door and will probably have to keep doing so for a while. There’s a lot of snow on that roof!
See! It’s warm enough for a couple of icicles to form, and that means that the sun is powerful enough to melt the snow. The things that northerners get excited about …
The snow next to my front door is melting.
This is the snow that has been shovelled for the last several months from my steps, and it contains bits of sand and paint. Paint on steps doesn’t do well in this environment.
The snow awning is more under control now, too.
Spring icicles are much more welcome than autumn ones.
Happy mid-week. 🙂
