Retreating winter..?

Februar 2 is from older days said to be the first day of spring in our south western part of Norway. I cannot say there is much resembling spring here at the moment. Ok, we had only 1cm of snow last night. Can we at least hope the winter is thinking of retreating?

Today on my morning walk with our dog I could see the ice in the river melting and the nights are not so cold anymore, about -2 and climbing every night. But the fruit trees are still struggling, knee deep in the snow. I think we'll have to postpone spring for some days yet...
