A Thaw at Last!

The temperature soared to 60 today and an awful lot of snow has melted away. Finally, the ice dams in my gutters are gone and I can stop worrying about leaks in the roof.
I went to the Morton Arboretum and took some pictures.

Finally - Something Nice About Snow in the Flatlands

It's been a long winter. Snow, cold and ice have been with us since early January. We never did get a January thaw. This week it is expected to get into the 50s, so all this snow will probably be gone. Well, before it all melted I took a couple of pictures of some snow sculptures sitting in the parking lot at a local shopping center. Finally, some positive use for snow here in the flatlands!

Beautiful Fall Day

It's a beautiful fall day here in Illinois. Seen on the Fox River Trail
