It actually looks like spring over there, lucky. Still got huge snow drifts in my garden.

Well it is only 1.5c.

Those hills with the snow are about the same elevation as you.

That's why I wish I could move nearer to sea level.

Hmm I'd like to find out. Our hills (1000 feet) had snow a few days ago, might be gone now. I'm sure at 3000 feet there's still snow in Massachusetts (highest elevation in the state is 3490 feet).

Up in New Hampshire in the White Mountains, the base of the mountains (1400 feet) still have snow. High of 53F yesterday with 20" of snow. It'll be interesting to see how long it lasts:

Mt. Washington (1900 m) had a high of -9C yesterday.

Well I think ours is about 500feet.

The snow is melting but not very much as the freezing line is below 2000feet every day. I think the snow will probably last to mid-april. Although there is suggestions of a northernly coming then so maybe later.

Dunno because I haven't been anywhere lower than here since the snow arrived, partly because I've been unable to due to the snow itself.

We can exchange places if you want - not much snow left here other than drifts, and our summers are up to 2 degrees warmer than Buxton's.
