The meteorological spring started on the first day of March, but since the universe likes jokes and irony, we got heavy snow instead of spring blooms. At that time, Southampton looked like it was in the middle of winter.
But if you looked closer, the signs of spring was there. There were daffodils hidden under the thick layer of snow, and a few other flowers peeked through the land of white.
Two days after that, the temperature rose to 10 degrees Celsius, and almost all traces of snow were gone. Apart from a few blocks of ice that were slowly melting, it almost looked like the whole snow debacle was just a tale.
