Dear Weather Gods…

It has been a gorgeous winter. Crisp cold air, stunning snowy scenes and curling up next to the fireplace. I truly enjoyed it.

It’s spring now yet snow continues to fall from thick grey clouds and the mercury is barely above the freezing point. Please wrap up the snow clouds, blow some warmth into the air, bring out the sun, and let the birds sing and the flowers bloom. Please.

I, and millions of people, will be so grateful for some warmth, sunny skies and a splash of colour. We’re more than ready for it.

THANK YOU! – I hope my simple request is answered very soon. 🙂

    Thank you Barbara! I hope we get warmer weather soon. It’s still freezing in Amsterdam. 🙁

    I love the spring photos! And I do hope you get warmer weather soon. I know that even when it’s been a “gorgeous” winter, we all look forward to the warmer, brighter days of spring!

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that spring will arrive soon. Snow is expected this weekend. 🙁

    Berlin is covered in snow and it is supposed to hit -12 Centigrade tonight and no better tomorrow. On the up-side, we will sooo enjoy Spring when it comes!

    I’m SO happy you wrote this post.
    I’m really suffering from being cold all the time.
    Not exagerating.
    Every one else mutters a “darn that weather” from time to time, but I don’t get the feeling they really care. And boy, do I care!
