Spring hasn't sprung no matter what the calendar says.
Usually at this time we are in shirt sleeves, sipping tea or coffee outdoors in a café.
Two nights ago it snowed in Perpignan, at most a two-time-in-a-decade occurrence.
The Tramantane is howling. Winds are around 77KPH according to weather.com.
The temperature is hovering at 10°C but it feels much colder because of the wind.
I hesitate to complain as my daughter in Boston awaits the fourth nor'easter in a couple of weeks. The rest of the East Coast residents are battered down.
Europe also is shivering.
I love winter, wind, snow...In December, January, February.
I am now ready for cherry trees such as the one at the ILO in Geneva and daffodils and long café sits in the sun.
