A Test With A Note Attached....

OK....I'm just testing out adding blog entries via email and though about something I noticed the other day and thought I'd post a note.
We've been hearing a lot about how bad this winter has been in this area.Well,that's certainly not the case here in the Liverpool area.We have had a few minor snowstorms....the largest amount was last Friday night and most of that is gone now.Anyways,the photo posted here was taken last Feb 10th at Victoria Lake,a couple of miles from the home domain.I remember that it was quite cold that day and,as you can see,there was a lot of ice.I was out past the lake on Tuesday.....there is hardly any ice there this year.Sorry,I didn't have the camera with me.

OK.That's it for this test.......
CHEERS!!

Mild and Raining


This morning's photo:

Yesterday was another fairly mild day here.There wasn't a lot of sun but temps were above freezing by a couple of degrees.Overnight the forecasted rain moved into the area and it is currently raining quite steadily.The snow depth in my backyard has decreased considerably overnight.

The rain is expected to persist through the day with temps expected to drop below freezing tonight with a change over to flurries a possibility.

Tomorrow is expected to be a bit cooler.
