Last Sunday everything was covered with ice and snow. Today, the above-freezing weather is making things melt quickly. The only white that's left on the front lawn are the piles where we tossed snow as we shoveled. I'm hopeful they will soon be gone, too.
Son Donald came for a visit after lunch. Mid-afternoon he stepped outside to take some things to his car. When he came in, he told us to go look at the sky. This is what we saw:
Isn't it interesting? I don't think I've ever seen this many airplane condensation trails in one place at once! We don't usually have many planes passing overhead, but there's several small airports in the area where private pilots can keep their crafts. I wonder if the nice weather brought them out.
It was too cold to be outside without a jacket, so after admiring the contrails for a few minutes we went back inside. I kept looking out the window to check on them every few minutes, though. It took almost an hour for all of them to disappear.
