1558 Spring Melt
Some rain was more effective than the warm weather in dissolving the thick snow pack. A couple of warm sector rains, and three feet of snow disappeared in a week. There were still some icy remains from the thicker patches of snow in the field. The colours from the April sun were just coming up over the Long Reach hillside - peaking through the trees. The sun itself was still below the marble horizon. Snow started to fall and pushed me inside. The sketch was good and the heat from the wood stove felt even better.
