Winter Reprieve, Sort Of

I'm currently in the UK for a bike show. They've had a quite a run of weather with snow storms prior to our arrival and cold residual temperatures in the aftermath. All the snow mas melted but it was below freezing last night. It's cold and windy today.

Still, the grass is green. The color is a nice break for the eyes when you're accustomed to staring at a white landscape day in and day out. In addition the air is warm and holds enough moisture that it's possible to smell things like the soil -- the smell of the earth that is frozen away for several months in MN.

I love visiting here. It's a nice winter break. The people are cool and the food is pretty good and the beer is not bad at all. I hope to get some photos up later. Until then, be well!
