Winter's Last Stand - Hopefully


Rise & Shine. #vikingbiking #copenhagen #cyclechic Surely this is the last snow before spring. #vikingbiking #copenhagen
If you follow me over at Instagram you may have seen these shots. This year, winter is hanging around like that last irritating guest at a party. Winter is lovely. We just think it should know when to leave. It has overstayed its welcome here in Copenhagen.

Spring, it seems, has a problem getting here. The trees and flowers have yet to bloom - and we're in April! It's getting to be too much. So let's send Winter a signal. Thanks for coming, now get off our lawn. Here are some photos from Winter's Last Stand.

Good morning, Copenhagen! #cyclechic #copenhagen The Saxofonist on the Red Bicycle. #saxophone #copenhagen #cyclechic #vikingbiking

Two Danish icons. The Carlsberg elephants & the Bullitt. #copenhagen #carlsberg #bullitt #cargobike Tailing the bike lane snow sweeper. #vikingbiking #copenhagen #cyclechic

My Brazilian chain lock sleeve looks sooo lonely in the snow. #cyclechic #bike My bike likes snow. #cyclechic #vikingbiking
A little piece of Brazil in the form of a Brazilian flag chain sleeve on my bicycle. And my green retro headlamp really believes in spring.
The Lulu drew the longest straw this morning. #vikingbiking #copenhagen #cyclechic #snow Winter Wonderland. #vikingbiking #copenhagen #bullitt @larryvsharry
The Lulu stills loves the ride, but the girl is itching for spring, too.
Lovely painstaking detail on this personalised kids bike seat #cyclechic #copenhagen #bike
Until it comes, we'll have to fabricate it ourselves.

From the first time I found myself landing here at CC oh so many years ago, you always made me feel better with your relatable weather. There is comfort in knowing one is not alone, and people are rising above and getting out and getting on with life.

Sadly, now too, on April 12, your weather is still relatable! We are having the same issue here in Minneapolis. :*( The ground is white again and low winter temps and snow are in the forecast for as far as we can see.

Winter, take a hint! I didn't buy new rain boots for you.

April 22nd and summer is still here in Argentina! with 25-27°C temperatures... Maybe autumn will start here next week?, we don't know. We should do an exchange.
