Well, spring has officially begun! The trees are just starting to bud. On Saturday it got up to about 13 degrees Celsius on my thermometer (55.4 Fahrenheit for those living in one of three countries that still does not use the metric system). That seemed pretty warm compared to what we're use to so I grabbed my camera and a sweater and went for a walk. The snow is melting quickly, but there was still quite a lot in the woods. It had a pretty hard crust so I could just walk along the top without sinking in too much. After a couple hours in the sun, though, the snow warmed up and my crust softened causing me to routinely sink up to about mid-thigh which slowed me down a bit. It turned into quite a workout.
