Snow gives way to spring weather

It was a nice day today with the sun shining and temperatures in the 40s. After our hard winter, the 40s felt more like the 60s.

I had to go to Batavia in the afternoon and stopped to take a picture of this barn along the muck in the town of Barre on Route 98. This barn might be 100 yards north of the county line. It’s the last barn in Orleans before you get to Genesee County.

It looks like nature is reclaiming some of the muck on Route 98.

I took a jog later at dusk and took this photo with my Smart Phone. The Butts Road bridge over the canal is in back. I took this south of the canal, looking north.

It’s supposed to be a high of 43 on Thursday followed by a high of 54 on Friday. The National Weather Service said there is a chance of snow of Saturday when temperatures fall to a low of 30. There is supposed to be a high of 42 on Saturday.
