A visiting niece tested the water temperature in the river near our house by going for a swim. A few miles upstream it's coming from melting snow, which I presume is the white stuff in your photo. She said that it was "nice". Oh to be young and not feel the cold as much.

Holy Cow! What sort of time frame did all this snow come down in?

I hope you went out and cleared off some of that snow! Holy Cow!

I won't mention the lawn got mowed today and the a/c installed in one of the rooms.
