70° at 45° North Latitude (Reprise)

I get a free vacation day on the fifth Monday of every month. Enjoy these images from April of 2011, just four years ago.

This is what a 70° day can look like in Northern Vermont. Yes, that is Lake Champlain. Yes, that is snow on top of the ice on Lake Champlain. I took those photos April 9, 2011, when the ice was still in but a southern breeze had pushed warm air up from the Gulf of Mexico.

It is probably not that warm today.

Looking southerly:

Looking west (that speck in the distance may be what’s left of a fishing shanty):
