Reading your title reminded me of the wet messiness that I’ve read comes with the thaw. Not ever having experienced “WINTER” or a “THAW”. Do you all wear gumboots with ice spikes so you don’t slip into the mess?

Not quite that bad. If it is a reasonable slow thaw, warm days & cool nights ( perfect for tapping/harvesting maple syrup ) the snow heaps sort of evaporate & melt trickle away. Quick warm-ups will lead to flash floods ( that is the big danger Down East in the Maritimes with the abundance of snow) if the top layer melts faster than than the ground and water-ways.
One of the reasons I photographed and posted these is because they are seldom used as subjects. Pristine winter tableaus & landscapes or beautiful early flowers and budding spring green are the norm, but the messy in between transitions ( chaotic abstract beauty) are ignored.

Those inbetween times are certainly ignored Joseph, yours is the only blog I follow that shows life WITH all the normal messiness of the everyday and I love it in part because of that, thank you.

Many thanks. There is a challenge in creating interesting compositions of the mundane messy corners and the ordinary things we take for granted that others in different parts of the world find very idiosyncratic . It also plays against the typical constructed realities an values & beliefs that accompany them.
