Spring Thaw – Now that’s what I call melting (and about time, too!)

When I got home last night, I was amused to note that the remnants of our ice storm weeks ago had been uncovered by melting during the day. The photo is dark, but you can see the layer of ice that’s no longer covered by snow.

It reminds me of how some rocks are harder than others, which is how you wind up with formations like buttes.

Temperatures rose even more overnight, and this morning when I left for work there was a swift-moving river of water rushing down the street toward the sewer grates.
