There was a blizzard the day after Christmas. Today I shoveled the deck, and saw this interesting pattern the snow made while it preferentially melted through the spaces between the deck's wooden boards.
And below, a few close-ups where you can see "strata."
One last one, slightly enhanced so that it has that icy blue color of glaciers in Antarctica on National Geographic photos...
The front yard and part of driveway after the snow stopped falling.
We filled the birdfeeder too, but no birds came out today. Maybe they will come out tomorrow, and hopefully the bluejays won't be bullies.
