Winter's Last Gasp? Again?

Last week the Preserve received around a foot of snow. It can just as the pathways were about thawed out. Today we are getting our fourth straight day of sun. It rises high enough now to melt snow despite the zero temps of the nights and the below freezing temps of the day.

The sun's radiant energy has warmed the garage enough that the last heavy snow is starting to sag, like a glacier coming down a mountain. The result is a sinister-looking, teeth-like formation of icicles.
