The Colorado sun came out in force today, melting most of the white stuff; the final traces are hanging tough here in the shadow cast by the ballfield fence, all nice and neat in a line, while Hooper and Lulu watch in despair as Jeannie and the other woman walk away with their dogs Joplin and Kyla:
Just goes to show you what a little shading can do in terms of reducing the amount of direct beam solar radiation that affects a given area.
The bits of snow missing in the foreground were eaten by Hooper. No shading device could have prevented that.
