These two scenes are from the same weekend. Saturday’s Mardi Gras parade partied its way under sunny skies and a high of 66 degrees. Temperatures dropped and snow and sleet fell last night, and at this moment, we’re sitting at 19 degrees with a layer of sleet covered by snow. A little more could be on the way today and tomorrow. It’s a winter as chaotic as last year’s, though with a bit less snow.
Mardi Gras took me completely by surprise this year — Tuesday seems so early — so I caught only the tail-end of the parade this time around. The rest of these are from a couple of Fayetteville trails.

I don’t think there is any sand in Arkansas, but here are some pretty cool ‘winter’ shots. They make me think of something you would photograph if you had the opportunity. They’re so unusual; like the frost flowers. http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2015/02/ice-sand-scultpures-lake-michigan/ (I do like your ‘budding’ green on the thorn branch; probably frozen by now)
Wow, that is cool. I didn’t know frozen sand ever did that.
