This was Monday. Sparky and I were out in the pasture, both needing some exercise after being stuck inside for much of the day.
Tuesday started out pretty cold and gray too, but then the sun came out and the temperature climbed into the 50s. The snow disappeared in what seemed like a few minutes, any place the sun touched at least. I went out for a five miler with Maya and Sam. The streams were flush with snow melt and run off; there was a lot of standing water and even more mud. It is nice to see the sun shine, but I'd be happy if the ground stayed frozen until it's dry.
