Snowmelt

Sun's out, snow is melting...at least in places. The temperature is not quite above freezing, but should be there soon, and hopefully that will let most of the roads clear for travel by late afternoon, and before things re-freeze overnight. This is the good (and typical) pattern of an Atlanta snow....one day of panic, screwed up traffic with all of us "can't drive in snow" drivers, pretty scenery, and then it mostly goes away the next day.

At the moment, there's *more* snow in my driveway and yard than at the end of the precipitation. The high pine trees that fill my yard all had heavy snow cover, and as things warm that snow is coming down in flakes, plops, globs, and hunks. Thumps on the roof signal the hunk-level, and the flake-drift has covered up the squirrel food I put out in a flat feeder.

Beef-vegetable soup is simmering, and should be ready for lunch. I didn't think of baking bread early enough (unless I do soda bread), but there's left-over whole-wheat challah from last night.
