Egads! What is that blinding orb in the sky?
Welcome, the first brief promise of Spring. The sun was bright, and the air felt warm (relatively speaking). By days end, the several foot deep blanket of roof snow had receded, if just a bit. Laying bare the outer edges of the shingled roof.
Oh, sure we will still have cold days and nights throughout the rest of February and March. But in between will be a few warm days here and there that will embolden Spring. And Winter will have been given notice his days are numbered.
