Just when we thought the winter was behind us. Wet snow stormed.

Luckily I was wearing my Icelandic wintercoat. The warmest, windstopperist, best I ever had.

It was cold outside but the sun already has some strength. Oh no, winter has just begun. We still have January and February to live through.

In the field next to the spooky farm (where I once saw the female farmer with a scythe over her shoulder walk in the twilight) there were some sheep grazing.
