Snow Cracks


The other day I noticed something that looked like a crack in the snow in my front yard. I didn’t think too much of it. I thought it was related to a mouse or other animal.

Then today while walking to the curb to pickup the newspaper, I noticed another one. This was a clear crack in the snow. In looking around I could see there were others. Some were attached – others not. It almost looks like a small scale snow plate tectonics – similar to what the earth’s crust does. It makes me wonder if it’s a coincidence or at these giant patches of snow that are very heavy and encased in a glaze from the recent ice storms really moving? I’ll have to keep my eye on these – unless the warmer temperatures of the weekend have other plans.
