Mid-Winter Thaw 

On my drive to work this morning I enjoyed the sight of the piles of snow visibly sublimating into the fifty degree air. Here's another common sight in New England at this time of year - the heavy equipment being deployed to clean up the snowbank remains from the roadways. When the snow is still present in vast quantities, it just stays on the road edges, narrowing the travel lands and blocking pedestrian ways. But once it shrinks a bit, the road crews dive in to tame it.
