The Last of the Melting Snow

It's almost gone here too.

Hello Tipper, I finally got off the mountain yesterday with a little help from the Deputy. The switchback was still covered with ice. No one every believes me but I have a "credible" witness now. I was able to get my groceries and other necessities. By the time I got home at 3:13 in the afternoon, the curve was still white but it was more slush than ice. I'll be one happy woman when this winter is over. I like this sunshine.
Don't you?
