Sunday afternoon walk in 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.
