Today, the mercury rose to twelve degrees Celsius, in the shadow! In the sun, a t-shirt was all I needed to keep my upper body warm. It felt great, but we may not forget that this kind of warmth must be considered very extreme, this time of year. Because of the prolonged warmth, the frost is clearly starting to loose control over nature, now.
Creeks and little streams have shed their ice cover and are running freely.
The lakes are still covered with ice though. But on the ice: a lot of melt water.
