Fascinating Snow

I know it has been a long time since I have poster here. Sorry,  I have been busy. (That is the best excuse I can come up with at least)

Here are some pictures that I took in March. I had seen this twice, but only got around to taking pictures the second time: (You can click on the pictures to get a larger version.)

Line in the snow. We had just gotten a big snow the night before. Earlier the same morning this area had all been covered in snow. But as you can se, some snow had melted. What was unusual was that instead on melting in splotches, it had melted along a straight line.

03-24-08_1634.jpg I have seen this happen along a wall, but as you can see there is no wall parallel to this line.
