A Warm Winter Day

On Sunday, I went straight to the bike path after church. It was a warm, delightful day, with a high temperature at nearly 60 degrees. The snow had melted days ago, and it was time for a delightful January thaw. Earlier in the morning, the day didn't look quite as promising, with rain and even a little wind. But, by the time I left church, the rain had stopped.
So I walked down the bike path and met people and dogs. I met energetic dogs and tired dogs and dogs looking for a treat in the ground. I met friendly dogs and reserved dogs. It was a fun walk. It was all about the trees of winter and the dogs.

No more drought conditions! Water doesn't absorb well in the clay soil.  This is a common sight in Grand Island.
