Minnesota Spring Thaw

I know so many other parts of the country have been experiencing Spring for quite a while, but here in Minnesota we are seeing our first day above 50 degrees since last fall.  It feels like it has been a very long and snowy winter.  When you combine a significant amount of snow, a short rain this morning and a 50 degree day, the quiet valley sees some major changes. 

This babbling stream and waterfall is usually a dry valley, but not today.
