On Sunday, we finally experienced a day of beautiful sunshine. The sun began quickly melting the snow and ice in our neighborhood, water rolling off rooftops like little monsoons. Richard and I ventured out for a brisk walk and to check the ice status of nearby roads. The top photo shows kids and adults (and even a couple of dogs!) sledding down a large hill near our house.

Snow Piles

Any snow that had accumulated in the clubhouse parking lot had been piled high by plows.

Richard

Richard, looking dashing.

“Now take one of me!”

Power lines

We stood here for a bit, listening to the faint eerie buzz of the power lines.

Clubhouse

The lovely neighborhood clubhouse.

BBQ truck

A BBQ food truck set up shop in the parking lot. No customers, though. I would think that most people on neighborhood walks are likely to leave their wallets at home!

Purrito

Gretchen preferred to stay all snuggled up indoors – near the fireplace, of course.

Monday

Alas, yesterday’s roads were in much better shape… and Monday beckoned.
