Rainy, Windy February Thaw

Yesterday, after a mild weekend and the onset of light rain (Rain! In early February!), the frozen Cannon River was collecting surface water and starting to look as if the ice might break up.

Overnight and this morning, gusty winds from the southwest have been rattling the house. Branches of an oak tree in a fairly sheltered position just west of my bedroom creaked and banged and scraped on the house throughout the night, sounding just as if someone were stomping around on the roof, and making me worry about the state of the shingles.
