Glacier In The Gravel (047/365)

2011 02 16 _MG_8878w
Pain reaches the heart with electrical speed, but truth moves to the heart as slowly as a glacier.

Barbara Kingsolver (American Writer and Activist. b.1955)

TIME:  3:56 PM
PLACE:  Back driveway
SUBJECT:  Ice patch in the driveway gravel

What a difference a week makes.  Our temps hit 70 degrees today and it is only supposed to get down to about 54 degrees tonight – crazy.  With the warmth, much of the ice covering our ground is or has melted away.  We had some small patches of ice remaining in front of our garage door which is in the shade most of the day.  I messed around taking photos with my 50mm lens.  This photo is a crop from of one of the pictures I snapped.

Neat shot! It's warm here too - up to 50 today and everything is melting.

When the snow melted here, it stayed longer in the drives of people with cars because their tyres had compacted it.

That is really really cool! Yep, all our ice has melted finally and we've been enjoying almost 70 degree weather. Come oooon spring!
