The sky cleared out so the sun finally came out again and started the big melt.


But, the clear sky means that the temperature plummets at night so the ice is sticking around for at least one more morning. We’re getting ready for another night below 15 degrees and school is closed again tomorrow.


At least the melting of some of the ice allowed us to make this very small snowman. It’s the first snowman the kids have been able to make here. It’s hard to believe that the last decent snow had been seven years ago. The last really big one happened when I was in college in the dark ages back in 1994!
