Hi Hans,

If it's any consolation, I'm back to my winter jacket for a while also! We also have had some sleet, but no accumulation -- couldn't believe it. . .

This would be good for birding, as it delays the foliage growth in the trees, but it's just too cold for me to spend a lot of time waiting for birds to show up, and by the time I can shoot comfortably, I'm afraid a lot of species will have passed through already. . .disappointing when I'm just itching to discover some new possible capabilities for the K-5 --

Well, I definitely won't tell you about our sunny day with highs in the 70's today...

Sure do hope you are surviving the cold, and that real springtime will return to you soon!!

We're getting an early start on Grey May days (or June Gloom). We had several lovely warm days, but the marine layer has moved in around work. Makes it hard to get enthusiastic about going out at lunch.
