The spring thaw is upon us.
That’s a bit of a stretch for Naples Florida since it never – or rarely – freezes in the first place, and when it does, it’s just for a few hours in the waning hours before dawn.
By thaw I meant warming.
Average daily lows and highs are on the upswing.
The only difference is that Pittsburgh is still frozen.
You can see that if you click into the historical calendar graph below.
On one of those days I was out at Picayune Strand – braving the cold. That’s where I took the photo below. It used to be a man-made channel called Prairie Canal, but now it’s been transformed into a series of ponds to put water back into the adjacent wetlands.
As cold as it was, it never froze (not even close).
Up in Pittsburgh, they’re still waiting on their ponds to thaw.
