Thankfully this is not snow. Though, it is not as warm as they were forecasting. Hopefully this will reduce our snowpack to something more manageable. The areas under the trees were starting to emerge in places already and I think this should spur them along. But, in the center of our yard (where things are pretty level with no piles), the snow is still up to the seat of the bench.
Areas that are clear – shoveled paths, trampled areas, areas near roads where rock salt was sprayed – are all very muddy. It will be a long spring.
