It looks cold there though!  Smiley
Oh no, it feels like spring already!  Wink
 But these remnants of snow are nothing comparative to those I had seen today on one of the country roads. In one place (shaded hill) the road was particularly blocked with masses of snow of 10...100cm thick! I guess it won't completely melt in next 2 weeks.

Finally we had our first good observing session outside the city (20km eastwards, Bortle class 4, I guess)

Weekend, perfect clear and hot weather, new Moon, moderately dark skies, hundreds of mosquitoes - all inclusive!  Smiley
