Day 22 - Dirty snow

Day 22 - Dirty snow
Originally uploaded by Karin Beil
Our daytime temperatures this week have been hovering just above freezing, so the snow has been melting. But as it melts, it exposes the dirt that has accumulated or was plowed into the snow banks. This is the ugly part of winter in the Chicago area. The colorful stake at the edge of the grass was planted by one of our neighbors. It helps the snowplow drivers see where the parkway grass begins and hopefully there will be less damage to repair this spring. I'm hoping the dirty snow melts quickly.
