I wonder when this wintry grip will finally break?  Roll Eyes
Well, here in Poltava it seems like never.  Grin
Although it is the second day of March (ie spring as most people think), but we still have 21cm of snow on the ground and temperatures within -5...+2C.  Tongue
Not so horrible as you can imagine from my words though... a week ago there were first signs of spring already: it was sometimes sunny, the temperatures were reaching +3...+7C in the daytime (although a few degress below zero at night), the snow was melting, and there was plenty of water & ice everywhere. But last weekend turned everything backwards to winter. A few snowfalls passed by, temperature is again mostly below zero. Feeling a bit frustrating to observe overcast & wintry weather instead of something better.
March is going to be a fourth month of winter (as in 2006) because 2-week forecast now tells about some clear weather this week with -5...-10C at night and then again plenty of precipitation (snow / wet snow / rain). More to tell... meteorologists warn about serious flooding in April, just after the snow completely melts.
