Interesting to see snow cover here at 57F

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

The staying power of sleet is impressive. It is just tough to melt that stuff off.

During the March 2014 sleet storm with 2-4 inches of snow on top , it took a solid 2 to almost 3 weeks with a March sun angle to melt all of that away.

I had forgotten about the sleet layer. I confess that I don't know how deep this layer is.

A ten inch snowpack that was in a frozen tundra for a week is holding up good at 53 degrees. Still have a solid 6 inches.

One of the reasons I don't mind a good sleet storm.  Over a day or two it's compacts and compresses into a mini glacier.  That makes it stick around much longer than it's fluffier winter counterpart.

Same here but where the sun hit it today it took a beating. Some places had zero melting. The big piles will be here for a couple weeks. I

Since I didn't have as much sleet my snow is melting a lot better than some areas down south.

Our driveway is thick with ice. Amazon driver got stuck on it this morning. Hub had to push him up out of it with his 4 wheel drive truck.  Hope the rain gets rid of it by tomorrow.

FYI - I ran this morning and it appears the ground is so cold that very thin layers of meltwater were refreezing to the pavement and it was imperceptible by eye.
