It Didn't Last!

I don't believe it; one good day of winter weather, and then the temperature started up again. By Tuesday it was nearly 10 degrees and melting fast. Do you know what happens to a rural driveway that has been packed down hard for several weeks when the temperature rises?

It becomes an ice rink, that's what! And our driveway goes up a gentle hill. So there's now a long narrow track of sand and salt up the drive, and by driving with one wheel on the side, and one on the track, we can get out.

But the cross-country skiing is gone for now, and even the snowshoeing is hardly necessary; you can just walk across the hard crusted snow. And no new snow is forecast - what a weird winter.
