I am happy to report that the three or four inches of snow that fell on Friday is gone, gone, gone. Goodbye, and don’t come back until next winter! But Winter is not quite done with us yet, and she has given us a blast of cold weather that is more than a little brisk: 25°F and very windy. Although he put a brave face on it, Snow-gauge Clif shivered as I took his picture this morning.
But I am getting ahead of myself. On Sunday, we went to Hallowell for a picture of the Kennebec River. Despite the snow, despite the cold, the Kennebec is nearly free of ice. Oh, the blue of that sky and water!
But the ice chunks aren’t gone. Not quite yet. I’m wondering how many weeks it will take before they finally melt.
Now, back to Narrows Pond Road with a ta-dah! The snow is nearly all gone from the backyard, and thus Snow-gauge Clif’s job there is done. Not enough snow to worry about. In fact, it’s time to think about raking.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the front yard, which is much shadier than the back. Snow-gauge Clif’s job is not quite done.
But let’s return to the backyard, where I saved the best for last. Another ta-dah, ta-dah!
The snow is nearly gone from the patio, and it’s not even close to April 22, Shannon’s birthday.
What do you think? One more week? Such excitement on Narrows Pond Road. Stay tuned!
