Winter is Almost Over

Winter is almost over according the calendar. Officially it's now Spring. The temperature the last few days has been around freezing but we did have warmer sunny days last weekend which helped melt a lot of snow. I took some photos just across the border in New York State where the roads are a wider and I can safely pull my car off the road.



There is still snow but it's beginning to melt. There's some flooding in a pasture on this side of the trees along the river's edge.



Closer view looking toward the river.



Remaining frozen snow. Look closely and you can see dirt embedded in the frozen snow.



Pasture, brown dirt, not snow!



Flood water glistening in the sunlight.



A slate company at the bottom of the photo. The fields above it which face north are still snow covered.
