White splendour ...

It's been a long and unusually white Winter so far! A thick layer of snow and pointy icicles have accompanied us for about seven weeks.

In the beginning there were joy and happiness about Winter's beauty but for a couple of weeks more and more people are longing for sunshine and warmth, colourful flowers and the sweet smell of Spring.

Well, it still the month of February which means cold temperatures and snowflakes here and there are quite normal but maybe people aren't used to such harsh Winters anymore. But iced footpaths and roads, heavy snowstorms and painful bone fractures aren't that enjoyable over a long period of time, no doubt about that.

Therefore you can notice a sigh of relief caused by the beginning thaw. Let's see how the upcoming weeks until Spring arrives will treat all those people who think Winter's a bit of a nuisance by now.
