Thankfully, the scene above was not what I saw on Monday morning. Yes there are still piles of thick snow on the grass left over from the 7 inches that fell by the end of the weekend. But the roads are clear and the forecast is for a warmer week. I am thankful that this morning was not a scary, snow-covered, slippery commute. And with the warmer weather on the way there is improvement on the horizon. We get to enjoy a bit of a break before winter truly sets in.
