finally down to "practically" bare pavement
As this earlier post illustrates, my street was covered with a thick sheet of packed snow and ice since the Christmas Day and two successive January Storms.
The warmer temperatures in mid-February prompted melting snow and premature flooding through the valley along the Wind River . . .

But . . . it was short-lived, as the day after the bare pavement photo (shown at the beginning of this post) was taken, it snowed and continued to snow into Friday. When the sun finally came out Friday afternoon, approximately 12 inches had fallen, and once more the piles of snow appeared in yards and the streets are again snow-packed.
