At least not for now, because we have had a major rise in temperature accompanied by sun!
The change from -21C (-6F) on Friday to today’s +8 (46F) has been huge, resulting in lots of water running everywhere and pond-sized puddles in yards, parking lots and soccer fields. I got a shower trying to get into the house!
You can see how much snow from the house eaves has already melted since a week ago.
Yes, spring icicles are springing up, or rather, down, everywhere.
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!
I am not a smoker, but I couldn’t resist a picture of this bristling butt disposal depot. Ugh. While I can’t imagine standing out in this cold for a puff – and I totally get why no one has bothered to clean this thing – I guess any proverbial butt in a storm will do!
