The photo on the left is from my New Years Day walk (more photos can be seen here.) The crappy photo on the right was taken today (with my camera phone) while on a walk down along the lake. It was just five days ago that I walked the same stretch when the temp was barely in the 20s. Today, we nearly touched the 60-degree mark. All the snow has melted away and it feels like April out, except when you pass a pile of discarded Christmas trees waiting to be hauled away.
