Signs of Spring, Week 3...

Well, we are still at least 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) below average and at waking up this morning it was 32F/ 0C so not much Spring going on over here. We've had occasional snow at least four times last week, can you believe it?

  5. Ni verkar ha ett intressant väder, det kommer jag ihåg från förra årets vårteckensutmaning också! Men just vädrets skiftningar är ju en form av vårtecken.
