Fading snow

With temps climbing into the 60s today, I decided to tempt fate and move the snow blower from the front yard to its summer place by the sheds. The last chunk of snow, well, really, ice, is almost gone from our deck.

The corner of our yard, sheltered from the sun, is still snow-covered. At the camp, there’s still a foot or more of ice that’s been pushed into the cove by the strong northwest winds.

I’m guessing that it will take at least a week, maybe even two, before the cove is open. We’re still hoping to open up around the first of May.
