..the snow is melting! Or at least it is in those parts of our little town that are subject to the recent appearance of..SUNSHINE!
However, on our side of the road, among the houses that are nestled into the tall fir trees on the side of the hill, we’re in constant shade at this time of the year. That’s because at our latitude the sun doesn’t rise high enough to clear the tops of the trees. But it’s getting there; this morning I noticed sun on the roof of the house & breaking in through the skylights. Soon, in a couple of weeks, we’ll have sufficient sun to sit on the deck out back. Until then, though, we have to go across the road to sit in the sun. From our living room window we can see the snow on everyone else’s roofs rapidly melt.
