The snow is slowly melting, and there's a lot more sun than was in the forecast, but the blustery skies remain. Dark gray clouds bring brief snow or rain showers and then bright blue skies bring back the sunshine.
This was the sky after lunch on our geology hike last Sunday. Some pretty ominous clouds sweeping in from the western horizon - they look like snow clouds to me.
In fact they weren't coming toward us, but sweeping across the landscape in front of us, the dark clouds contrasting with these old hawthorn trees in the pasture beside the trail.
We carried on regardless (we had to; our cars were waiting for us). But we never did encounter either rain or snow, surviving the hike with just a lot of muddy boots.
This was today, when I went out for another short walk along the trail. Streamers off Lake Huron were bringing those alternating dark gray clouds and the bright blue sky in between all day long.
Off for another two geology hikes this weekend; I'll report on them after the weekend.
