Open Thread: Snow on Brick

When the snow first falls, the bare ground is usually too hot for it, and it melts.  A stick or leaf may provide sufficient separation from the ground to allow it to collect.  Thus there are often random islands of snow.

However not all ground has the same thermal properties, and in certain cases we get patterns.  the gaps between bricks provide safe harbor for snowflakes even as the bricks themselves melt the flakes into oblivion.

Friday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s ahead of us, so give us something new to explore!

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
