Winter, 2 – Spring, 2

It’s hardly an exaggeration to say  that the Northeast is ready for spring. Personally, I love the snow, especially when it is falling or sparkling in its pristine whiteness.

The eagerly awaited new season finally came. This is how Spring arrived in New York:

We laughed. What else could one do?
In a few days, the temperature reached almost 60º. The snow disappeared.

Then, exactly one week later, Winter beat Spring into submission. The snow came blowing back.

By Friday night, the snow was seriously coming down.

And it continued to snow on Saturday, heavily, all day.

By Sunday morning it looked like this.

Then the sun came out.

A few hours later, on Sunday afternoon, the Spring sun had banished Winter once again. Is this contest finally over? Will Spring finally triumph?
