Weather Talk: Even on cold days, sun now causing snow to melt
Although the weather is still cold, on almost any sunny day there is meltwater visible on streets, sidewalks and parking lots. The days are getting longer but, more to the point, the sun is getting higher in the sky. More direct sunlight is able to pass through the atmosphere and heat the ground. Bright, white snow reflects a lot of the sunlight, but darker surfaces like roads and roofs absorb some of the rays and warm up.

Good timing
TOWNER, N.D. — I once saw a “demotivational” poster that said, “Mistakes — it could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.” Pretty inspirational, huh? There have been times in my 23 years of post-college cattle ranching when I felt my marketing decisions were best used as a warning to others. Kind of a “whatever I do, do the opposite” piece of marketing advice for others.
