While there is still about 10 inches (25 cm) covering most of our yard, in some places in the Robson Valley the snow has pretty much disappeared. I was in Koeneman Park, where most of the snow has already disappeared, and saw physical evidence of the passive power of the sun. The only snow left was just a strip of running across the lawn. It lay in the area where the shadow of the fence fell, the sun had melted everything else.
Back at home, near my greenhouse I saw the another example of the phenomenon.
