Last Monday and Tuesday were about the best winter we've had all winter! But then came the soaring temperatures of Wednesday, and winter effectively disappeared, still white, but the snow much reduced, and the driveway actually bare. I thought spring had arrived. Then yesterday winter came back with a vengeance, in a cold blustery day with strong winds, cold temperatures and lots of snow. Looking out today we're back to winter, a bonus for the ski clubs at the beginning of March Break.
One of my favourite winter pictures comes on a sunny day when you see bluish shadows across the snow when walking the trail. These two pictures were taken on the Sligo side trail a week ago.
