Shangri-La from the Granville Street Bridge with the blinding sun glinting off Pomaria.

Well there is no winter at all expect in the far north. Even in northern Sweden winter is 8 degrees milder then normal I read today. (-1 instead of -9 or something like that).

In western Europe we have had no snow at all till now and there will be none in the next week and then it's almost spring. In Switzerland temperatures rose to more then 20C last weekend en +2C on mountains almost 3km high...
