When Snow Melts, You Get a Mess

Sitting at 3C, cloudy, but no rain, or snow for that matter, the day is looking pretty good. However, the snow is melting at a fast rate, and the puddles in the parking lot are growing just as a fast. Funny how that works. Rumour has it, our parking lot will get snow removal is the next hour or so, hopefully taking care the newly developed lakes outside my front door. This will be nice, and I cannot wait becuase I have a million things to do up town today. 

We only had about 6 to 8cm of snow fall back on Friday, but the lower valley was sitting at above freezing, making the snow heavy and slushy. As soon the snow fell from the sky, it was melting. Below that thick layer of snow was water. If you shoveled it, it was heavy to move. When you drove through it, it splatters everywhere. This is the type of snow I would not want to walk in out on the roads.

The good news is, the roads are clear, and getting around was never an issue. Now, where to put all this water?
