Proof that spring is almost here

Dr. Sam Batzli, Director of the WisconsinView program, recently shared some very striking imgery acquired by the MODIS intstrument carried onboard NASA’s Aqua satellite.  Can we call this scientific proof that spring is on the way?  The following two images clearly show the rapid snowmelt that occured in less than a week between March 8th and March 14th.
