Remnants of Snowpocalypse
Sure, it hasn't snowed in three weeks. We've still got some on the ground. There's a tiny bit in my front lawn (and I mean tiny, it's probably covering about half a square foot by now if that much) but the corners where they piled up the snow will be there a while.
So here's Ginger up on top of one of the piles. I couldn't back up far enough to get the whole thing (had to hold the leash) but I'll give you an idea of what you're looking at.
I'm holding my arm straight out. I'm 5-foot-7 and a human is about 7 heads tall. My shoulder is just below my head, so we'll say it's 6 heads off the ground, and round down a little bit. That comes out to about 4-foot-9, and you can see the leash has to go up to get to Ginger's harness. That puts her shoulders roughly five feet up, and means there's at least four feet of snow still piled up there. And that's after a week or so of high-enough temperatures to melt everything off the yard.
Let's see if the piles around here make it to Easter.
