Winter

These are the posts that show nature in the Ozarks during winter.

It's not really raining. It just sounds like it because the sun is melting the frost on our metal roof.

It’s not really raining | Sporadic Musings

As the sun rises over the ridge-top to our east the frost on our metal roof quickly responds. It sounds like rain as the melted drops fall onto the lower roof. But it’s not. The sun is shining brightly outside and there are no clouds in sight. It’s only frost melt.
