Don't Blink Or You Miss It Kind Of Day

Last night it snowed.  One of those snows that falls wet and heavy and fast; large amounts of accumulation can break trees, down power lines, damage homes.  But last night was only about 5-6 inches of snow.

And it was definitely a blink or you miss it snow.  The ground underneath is still warm, so it starts to melt as it is accumulating.  It's pretty easy to shovel right down to dirt.  not that you need to, because when the sun comes out, the snow starts to melt right away.  At 1pm, the driveway is already melted and the road is mostly melted.  Almost all the snow in the trees has fallen, and mud is the new order of the day.

A very typical spring snow.

So while Husband took care of the chickens, I wandered around the property and up the road, to get the beauty of snow of snow on such a warm morning captured for all to enjoy.

Snow already melting in the dog run.

No traffic on our part of the road yet.
