Stagnant, undecided weather –
The pale sun shines on the snow with a clear orange brassy color that I always associate with late February or early March-
For walk north beyond French Rd. to the R.R. The sunshine is warm and mellow – many fields are clear of snow, and the grass glows with a rich warm ochre color –
Charles Burchfield, January 4, 1931
