Here’s a close-up of frost heaving…the water in the soil freezes and expands and the crystals move the soil around, which can affect the disposition of artifacts…. Sunny today, but not much above freezing. I heard melting, but in protected places the evidence of a winter snow/ice event remains.
Photographic proof of the heavier snow load in the north GA mountains…what the neighbors brought back on the roof of their SUV…looks like about four inches…far more than the dusting that happened hereabouts.
