The temperature rose to a sweltering 45 degrees, causing a dramatic meltdown of the recent accumulation of snow. As a result, Spokane has been transformed into a land of rivers and lakes on every street, parking lot, and alleyway. The remaining mounds of snow left by the plows have assumed interesting shapes caused by the rapid melt. All aesthetics aside, it's wonderful to see the street again; things almost feel normal.
I love to see how the water carves a channel through ice, like a miniature version of river formation in nature.
