Warm Rays

When I left for work yesterday morning, there was actually less snow on the driveway than when we walked down to the barn the night before to check on the horses.

Astute observers may notice the fantastic jump in temperature recorded by the trail camera. Seems the direct sunlight against the trunk of the tree and the plastic of the camera body creates a significant amplification of the air temp. I’m pretty sure it didn’t reach 89° (F) here yesterday afternoon.
