Yes, and it was only a bit over two weeks ago that winter was here with a vengeance, three feet or more of snow was covering the ground, and no end was in sight.
Here’s a picture taken outside our back door on the ground level. Bare pavement is visible! This is the space I had to keep working on to clear the snow in case we needed to haul out the generator in a power outage. But there was always thick snow and ice over these pavers.
