Melting ice at Red Arrow skating rink

Last week Friday the temperature was 0º on our back porch thermometer when I let the dogs out first thing in the morning.  Today the high is supposed to hit 63º.  Quite a change, (to which my sinuses can attest 🙂 ).  Standing water and glimpses of cement through the ice at the rink in Milwaukee’s Red Arrow park greeted me when I made a Starbucks run earlier this morning.  A welcome sign that this winter is just about over!

    I was going to say something off topic like, “you have a dog?” But I agree about the tremendous change in climate that we have experience this last week. All I can say is……Can’t last! 🙂

    • Not off topic: I have two black Labs. And you’re right, we could still have major snowstorm. Remember the 10 inches we got on Good Friday several years ago? Or the year (1982?) that Opening Day got postponed because of snow? I’m not putting my sweaters away quite yet!
