The Back Yard

Forty-eight hours ago, The Pond was open water, with only a little icing over in the corners showing up overnight. Twenty-four hours ago, The Pond had a sheen of ice across most of its surface, but it melted over the course of the day. Today, The Pond is frozen over, and I have serious doubts that we will see open water until next April or May.

Welcome to the countdown.
