Snow yesterday and overnight and this morning... sun?! Can't say we were expecting this but the sun is out right now. Lots of blue sky, quite a few clouds lingering on. It was a very cold night though and still very cold this morning.... I'm happy to say that it does not feel like early March.
If we are to believe the weather forecasts, it will be snowing still today - and over the weekend as well - so perhaps it will quickly change and we'll be back to the snow soon.
Whatever happens today (well, unless it's heavy rain which obviously won't happen!) it should be a great weekend.
