In the three weeks that I've been at Grimsö, the daylight hours have changed from the equivalent of a Brisbane winter to a Brisbane summer.

It snowed heavily on Wednesday evening, the first time in over a week. "Snowing heavily" doesn't seem quite right to me, because regardless of the volume of snow in the air, it flutters down and lands lightly. It doesn't really compare to the downpours we call heavy rain in Brisbane.

As a result of the 'heavy snow', all my footprints around the cabin had been erased on Thursday morning. But there was another set of prints: a hare had come to visit in the early morning. And I recognised its tracks. Lame twitching victory for an urban girl.
