We just exercised. I am walking through the house trying to cool down, but still panting as if I had run through Grand Central trying to catch the last train home!
While walking I’ve been staring into the backyard. The lawn’s been hidden for well over a month!
Even without a recent snowfall the makeup of what’s in the yard has changed. My backyard’s topography now resembles a desert.
The backyard snowpack is not flat. The snow undulates in graceful waves like you’d ind in the desert. That’s wind related.
In fact every part of the backyard’s look is wind related!
Where has snow piled on elevated objects like deck furniture the wind has begun to carve away from the monolithic look. The snow has taken on characteristics I’ve seen in Monument Valley and Zion National Park. The snow is starting to separate into layers.
It’s science. It’s math. It’s nature. It’s beautiful. It’s time for it to melt now.
