Today's image is titled Neon Warnings and was photographed by Karen Darcy.
Madison was dusted with a thin layer of wet snow overnight, with more light amounts possible over the weekend. This adds a wintry blanket to the sand-encrusted fragments of icy drifts lining the streets, the remnants of December's near-record snowfall left over after a balmy opening to January. The slightly slick conditions out there today are nothing like those last month, though, and parking is much less of a headache, as seen in this photo.
"I watched workers pound these signs into frozen snow banks outside my house at 6:30 pm, Dec. 13th," writes Darcy in the caption. "The warning signs threatened towing of violators in a mere 12-1/2 hours. So much for the 48-hour rule the city claimed to issue!"
It doesn't look like this will be a recurring problem over the next week, but there's still plenty of winter left in Madison.
