It's gorgeous here too, just about to put my towels on the line and attempt to tidy up the wreckage left by the snow. It's nice to have some sun again!!

We had 4 inches last night which is sitting on top of about 6 inches of solid ice and I have just spent 2 hours digging out the driveway and paths. I am sick of the bloody stuff. Currently 0c and hasn't been above that for about 6 weeks so no thaw.

That sounds good Crowsashes. Send a little our way please, we had a few hours sun, but it has been accompanied by a bitter old wind.
I can't wait to get out in the garden again, but it has been, snowing, raining, or below zero now for what fells like forever so there hasn't been much point. My poor little patch is looking so sorry for itself :shaking:

At least it has given me lots of time for crafting :iconbiggrin:

But bring on some springtime :sunny: :sunny: :sunny: :sunny: :sunny: :sunny: :sunny: :sunny: :sunny:

Yesterday was a bit showery, but today is gorgeous ... not a cloud in the sky, no wind and temperature of 12c at the moment. :sunny:
All the doors and windows open and I'm walking about in my shirtsleeves.
Unfortunately the forecast for the coming week is very wet and windy from tonight till at least next Saturday, so it's a case of make the most of today, for tomorrow it's working indoors redecorating. :(

Sun?
Polar night more like it... I haven't seen the sun since I went below the polar circle for christmas.

Nice and warm out today though, -13,5 :D.

We got out and started our winter tree pruning - thank god for some fresh air even though the sun disappeared after a while. I felt properly alive for the first time in about 2 months, what SAD syndrome? :iconbiggrin: Right watch out I am in my snippin' and clippin' mood! :sunny:
