Today the package actually arrived, and I was able to collect it. The box was a long-delayed Christmas present for travelswithkuma, and you can see it on Kuma's journal.
On the way home, we noted how Imerys Minerals (the diatomaceous-earth processing plant down the street) had cleared the snow from their parking lot and loading docks by piling it across the street and how the melting snow is pooling up to form the intermittent pond we call "Lake Imerys." However, there's now also a new temporary landmark.
Mount Imerys is not as big as Bandini Mountain, but it's also not nearly as smelly.
Our sidewalks are all clear (except one spur that I should probably go sweep in case it gets below freezing tonight) and there's plenty of melting snow dripping off the roof. The cornices I photographed over the last few days all gave up the ghost, leaving piles of slowly-melting snow along the edge of the garage.
