No snow here anymore, only sunshine on the pines.

Trees can't carry any more snow. Spring, please. Come.

Last night it was -40 F in the north, in Helsinki it was only -14 F...

We're having a warm spell, it's already 50º today ... still, mountains of snow need melting. :|

SusuPetal:
As you can see, Susu, you are quite correct!

Add another blanket or two, yes?

I only wish that I'd been able to get outside the day that the wind was whipping the snow into a real whiteout of a fog. Maybe next time.

Elegia!!!!!!!! It's good to see you here again! We've had a fortuitous week of 50º temperatures and this tree is now without snow. Even so (as no good deed goes unpunished) there's a blizzard predicted for tomorrow. :|
