The water on the outdoor HenCam lens isn’t rain – we’re having a mid-winter thaw, and what you see is melting, dripping water. Thank goodness.
Then again, since the ground is still frozen solid, and on top of that is about 4 inches of packed snow/ice, and then about 9 inches of snow over that, well, when the top layer melts, there’s nowhere for the water to go. It’s supposed to be above freezing all week, but only during the day. At night, all that newly melted water will turn back into smooth ice. Walking is treacherous.
Maybe by the end of the week there will be mud? Sigh.
