As is customary in these parts, snow falls only last a day...
Well... perhaps less than a day.
By yesterday evening, it seemed that the great thaw had already started, with plant-life freeing itself from the thick white blanket which had been covering them all day.
But it wasn't just living things from which the snow disappeared from. As you can see in the photos above, the snow off the roof started sliding off, precariously hanging over the edge of the spouting...
However, it soon became clear that part of the spouting perhaps didn't fare as well as the rest, probably because it graced the end of a section of roof which was longer than any other part of roof in the house. The weight of the snow caused part of it to buckle and swell. In a bid to help save it, I had a bit of fun whacking snow off the roof this afternoon; big, juicy chunks of snow :D
Still, it was great having a little true mid-winter break, doing something completely different for a change.
