    Ok,.. so this may be kinda lame,... but it was also kinda cool! We're still getting a few inches of snow every couple of days yet,... but it thaws every day now during the afternoon, and today we got another 3-4" again,... and after I got home this evening, I saw that the muddy slush on the road had refroze on my wheels as I was driving and formed some cool ice art on the center cones of the wheels,.... this is the final effort of winter trying to not let go of the landscape it has spent the last 6 months creating,... this first one was on a front wheel,...

    We always get snow in May,... never to any amount that has to be plowed,... but I usually always have to plow thru at least mid-April. Actually, I've seen snow here in every month of the year at some point thru-out the years,... I remember, I think it was in the early 80's, a tourist was killed right at the beginning of my driveway when he lost control of his vehicle during a snowstorm in July,... he took out my mailbox when he left the road.

    More Wheel ice art

    Well, today it happened again,... more of these cool spiral ice formations on my wheels,.... the conditions again today are,.... the air temps are below freezing,.... I think the high temp today was maybe +22° F,.... but the sun is putting out enough heat now to melt the snow-pack & ice on the highways as the asphalt absorbs the heat,.... so driving thru small amounts of water when the air is freezing, is what it takes to make this happen,.... I was watching for it today,... so I got it at it's beginning,.. and at it's best!!
