    After 3 weeks of fog and heavy clouds, I kinda feel the same way about seeing the sun today. It’s wonderful!

    This is such a beautiful shot, as all of yours are. I too long for spring but am still looking out my window at several feet of snow piled up in my yard. I would really enjoy the warm springlike break that you are getting right now.

    These pictures are stunning. Living in Southern England our winter has been solid wind and rain with mild termperatures. Would love to experience some proper winter weather!

    I’m on the other side – hot and dry, very intense at times….love to come here to cool down…was in Norway once and loved it….
