Today it was sunny and in the low to mid 20s and it felt downright balmy! People were walking outside without coats, just as though it was spring. Now I know why God sends us -9 degrees and a week of sub-zero windchills -- so we'll think 25 is warm!
We've had snow on the ground since right after New Year's; not alot, but enough to stay around. On the other hand, snow in the London area is so rare that all the bloggers take photos of it. Here's one of snow in Oxford from the Oxford Daily Photo blog I look at.
I think it would be great to live somewhere where snow was an enough of an oddity that it warranted comment. I guess we'd seldom have a white Christmas, though, and I'd miss that.
