The Thaw – In Photos

IMG_0160And just like that, the snow is gone. It’s still freezing (literally. It’s 21 degrees right now), but there are signs that spring is on the way – birds chirping (a sound I didn’t realize was missing until I started hearing it a couple weeks ago), squirrels digging up the millions of acorns they hid in our yard last fall (annoying!) and even buds on the trees. Nature is ready for sunshine and although I did love the snow, so am I.

More photos of the thaw….

Sam and I walked along the lake last week to look at the icy landscape for the last time…

Another beautiful sunrise…

  1. Beautiful pictures. It’s nice to see things warming up, although, the sloshy mess, black dirt melting snow stuff is icky. I like it when snow covers up things, not adds to the grit and grime! Ah well, at least everything is not thirsty!
