I just got back from Rib Mountain with a few pictures of the remaining snow. There are still a couple of pretty healthy piles of snow left, so if you picked today or tomorrow, you are probably out of luck. It looks like a few more days before we find out who is going to win the big R-store gift cards. I have included a couple of pictures for your perusing. These pictures might look a lot like last week Friday but they are new pictures and I could notice a significant difference in the volume of snow left. The warmer weather pattern developing over the next few days should accelerate the melting a bit.
Also, I apologize for not blogging as much recently. I have been a little too busy with some new things and some presentations. One presentation I am working on that you might consider attending is “Space & Weather” which will occur at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau this coming Saturday (May 12th) from 1 to 2 pm. I will explore the nature of the weather from the surface of the earth, up and out of the atmosphere, and on to other planets. The presentation is free and open to the public and is timed with the current NASA-themed art exhibit.
