Sunday afternoon walk in Owen Park

Madison Skyline Late Sunday Afternoon from Snowless Owen Park
The Madison skyline was at its best Sunday afternoon when seen from Owen Park, the city shimmering in the distance above a park suddenly almost entirely devoid of snow.

On Feb. 2 it was cloudy and we had a light snow, which meant that our local groundhog (Jimmy) was not able to see his shadow. It made him a good prognosticator. We have an early spring, and the snow has disappeared almost overnight -- aided by a warm and foggy week, followed by an even warmer, windy weekend. At Owen Park, the only snow to be seen was on a couple heavily shadowed paths deep in the woods. The ground is even starting to dry out.

Spring Is Breaking Out Large On Black
