Spring comes, bringing with it..Winter!

Well yes, it’s Spring isn’t it? Officially since last week..though in reality we’ve had three weeks of Spring weather since the beginning of March. But yesterday and today, surprise, Winter’s back..at least in the Sierra. In Cercedilla we awoke this morning to about 10cm of windblown snow, and higher up in the mountains there was up to 20cm..at least where the fierce winds that blew last night let it accumulate. So this afternoon we headed up to Siete Picos and..skied back into Winter, a decent ration of new snow and 3º below zero in the middle of the day.

Here's me on the way up, looking really chuffed to be out in the cold..to hell with the heat!

Many of us cold-lovers were beginning to despair of the weather (once again) over the last week or so..until yesterday it looked like we were only going to get more rain and little new snow. However the meteo picture has changed slightly and with a bit of luck we might even get some more snow at the weekend. Hurrah for cold Spring days!

About coldspringdays

Éireannach is ea mé, i mo chonaí insan Spáinn. Rugadh mé i lár na tuaithe, ar feadh blianta bhí mé ag teitheadh uaithi, i bhfad as an tuath, ach sa deireadh d'fhill mé, ar ais go dtí an tuath.. An Irishman am I, settled in Spain. Born was I in the middle of the country, for years I ran from it, far from the country, but in the end I returned, back to the country..
