February Freeze

Thank goodness the cold-snap we had in the middle of February has passed.  For 2 weeks we never once got above freezing.  

It made for some beautiful scenes, though. 

Nyhavn frozen in ice.

Even the sea was frozen for as far as you could see!

We got a few centimeters of snow, enough to draw every child from 0-100 out to play on the small hills in the park across the street from us.

Woody wasn't so sure about the cold white stuff.

He was cranky after the few runs we took.

No such thing as fair-weather cycling in Denmark. 

The cycle tracks are better maintained than the roads!

This week I've heard the birds chirping and the lakes have thawed.  I would like to believe that Spring isn't far away, but the sceptic in me isn't holding out hope.  I've heard it's not nice until June.

This post should come with a shot of Schnapps. I'm shivering just from the photos!
