Come this morning, the tubs in our kitchen had accumulated a few days worth of fruit skins and vegetable peelings. Normally they would have gone out to the compost bin earlier, but the bin is in the yard's icy patch, where our southern fence blocks sunshine in the winter. Several days after the storm, our bin still looked something like this. 

Coolest compost bin on the block

Well, I finally went out to wrestle with the ice today. A chunk fell off the lid, landed on the ice next to the bin, and shattered into a dozen pieces! Then the pieces slid down the little hill of our yard, making happy twinkling sounds along the way.

You can imagine how the rest of the ice on the lid met its end after that

It was really great.
