Notes Bright, sunny winter day after a light dusting of new snow. Drifted snow was still present in some of the ditches, but warmer temps earlier in the week had caused most of the snow that was present in the fields, etc. to melt. My count companion was not able to assist today, but as there is very light traffic on this rural route, I was able to manage on my own.
