A Short Respite (aka The Thaw)

What a pleasant surprise we had yesterday. As I went out in the morning (6:15) to start the car I realized it wasn't freezing. Really! It was 33 degrees and a slight mist was falling. By mid afternoon the temperature was around 40 degrees, and the Chinook winds were blowing around 35 miles an hour melting the snow like crazy! It was nice to go outside and only need a light sweater. We generally look forward to this weather phenomenon in January (the January thaw) so I do hope it comes back next month. I took these pictures around 5:00 pm yesterday. you can see how much melting had already occured. I hope your day was warm like ours!

Drive safely!
