A Little Bit of Snow?

Sixty and Seventy degree readings from the last few days gave way to a strong cold front yesterday with heavy rains, followed by a spring surprise. About an inch and a half of snow coating the world in white.  Took a short walk at the Schodack Town Park on my lunch break along the banks of the Moordener Kill.
 The path was the only thing not completely covered in snow in the woods.
 Snowy woods.
 Birds were chirping and the skies were blue, but it sure didn't feel like spring.
 A stiff NW wind and a temperature right around freezing made it feel pretty chilly.
 Spring snow.
 I was the first person to make footprints in the new snow.  Unless you count the animals, which I saw plenty of fresh tracks of. Fox, squirrel, coyote to name a few.
 Would look pretty if it wasn't April 16th.
 Looking downstream on the Moordener Kill.
 Cold water flowing towards a bend in the creek.
An example of how quickly the snow melts with even just barely above freezing temperatures this time of year.  The first picture below was from about 10am.
 This is what it looked like by 2pm with a temp in the mid to upper 30s.
