Well, the snow has melted and the sheep were out on the fields.
Today, it was gloomy in the morning but the sun showed up for a little while in the afternoon.
Nevertheless, it was fine, it was neither raining nor snowing.

And yes, for your information, it is now officially astronomically Winter on this part of the earth.
Quoted from Winter solstice in Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
“Depending on the shift of the calendar, the winter solstice occurs on December 21 or 22 each year in the Northern Hemisphere, and June 20 or 21 in the Southern Hemisphere. The 2010 winter solstice (summer solstice in the southern hemisphere) occurred on December 21, at 23:38 UTC. This is 11:38 pm Western European Time (WET) or 6:38 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).”
