Well we are in the middle of our two day warm up before the winter weather returns this weekend. When I went out to fill the bird feeders again, I noticed that the ice was slowly starting to melt. If you look at the picture from yesterday you can tell that the pond lost a little bit of ice.
I’m just not sure how long it will take the ice that is covering the edge of the brick to melt (I’d say it is probably about a good half an inch thick). There are times when I wish I could just take a sick day for no other reason than the weather (like tomorrow when it is suppose to be in the mid sixties). But I won’t–I’ll be an adult, I’ll go to work and stare out the window at the sunny weather, and actually be a little envious of the students as they go between classes and then home afterwards.
