A couple weeks ago, it looked like this in eastern Wyoming.
Then the temperatures warmed up enough to melt the snow, but not take the frost out of the soil, and all that wonderful early spring moisture ran off.
Usually this creek is bone-dry this time of year.
We're all quite incensed about it. After dealing with the mud that covered a slick layer of ice for weeks, we were hopeful the frost would go and at least some of the moisture would sink in. But that's just something you live with and manage around in agriculture, and the upcoming weeks look favorable for more spring moisture, now that the frost is officially out...for the time being.
