Three days after the snowstorm (sorry I keep mentioning the snowstorm, but it really was a big deal), and my neighborhood still had snow on the ground. Not a lot, most of it had melted away. But we still some.
The contrasts referred to in the post title are not the colors in the photo, but the fact that with snow still on the ground, I looked up when I was waiting in line to pick my daughter up from school and saw the trees budding.
On the ground it was still winter. In the trees, the first signs of spring. I know it's not unusual, but I still think it's very cool.
