Daffodils on my balcony under La Peñota

A couple of daffodils opened  on the balcony the other day, a sure sign of Spring..and yet the following days saw temperatures below zero (the lowest was -2.4ºC on Thursday last)..and yesterday Saturday, though 0nly rain fell in Cercedilla, it snowed all morning in Cotos.

Heavy snow at Cotos on Saturday morning

Heavy snow at Cotos on Saturday morning, we were able to ski right down to the train.

Not the best day to be out weatherwise – especially when you are only four – although the fresh snow was great to ski. We got a couple of descents in before the blizzard forced us to take refuge in the station bar.

Unfortunately later in the day the snow seems to have turned to rain..but still, it’s a pretty cool start to Spring.

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..
