How Romantic

Today's sunrise was warm and drippy...

For the last couple of days temperatures have soared into the 40s melting the still-enormous piles of snow left over from the blizzard and turning everything into a slushy, sludgy, mucky mess. My walk to school was spent hopping over or tiptoeing through giant puddles ubiquitously pooled all over the sidewalks.

While practicing before class, I noticed that a quartet of swans had landed in a protected ice-rimmed pool near the lake shore. I caught this picture of the group after the clouds broke later in the day. Two pairs of committed avian lovers languidly paddling the afternoon away...how appropriate for Valentine's day.

Love to all...
