Winter’s encore March 21, 2015

The snow of two Thursdays ago turned out not to be the last snow of the season. An encore performance came through yesterday. This time, it was entirely wet snow. Thanks to two weeks of above-freezing temperatures, in addition to the strength of the mid-March sun, not much snow stuck on pavement. I measured an inch in the driveway last night as the snow was tapering off. The front lawn accurately represented the snowfall: 5 inches.

Below is a timeline of the snowfall from start to finish, followed by today’s rapid melting.

There may not be any snow left on the ground by Monday, and that may be the last we see until late fall. Happy spring.
