The warmth returned some and started to melt off some of the snow but with it came wind that doesn’t make the increased temperatures very pleasant. I really will be happy to have things warm enough where we can go out to our little patio in the back yard and see more than brown grass and melting snow. Some of the snow melted a bit and then froze so I expect it will be with us for quite a while. The lava rocks help the melting process and leave some interesting pock marks in the remaining snowwhile a visiting kitty left paw prints to show of his or her passing. I love the little islands of snow remaining on our sandstone rocks…it makes me think that before too long we may see that winter is surrounded and on the way out. For now the paw print of winter remains and I don’t see it leaving just yet.
