Greetings and happy St  Valentine’s Day!
Tuesday went pretty good for us. It only got up to about 30 and there was some cloud cover. There really wasn’t any obvious melting.

The ice on my road got a little slipperier. I decided that since the snow was soft before a melt/refreeze cycle, I’d push back the top of the snowbanks along the driveway. It didn’t take long to figure out that it was a little icy for that. There was a nice inch thick ice base, but not enough  bonded snow for traction.

I am more concerned about the next couple of days. The worst of it looks like it will come today when we could go 4011818poster11 and sunny. Thursday’s forecast high is 37 but we are expecting clouds.011818poster4
