The icy winter period 2016 was very short

The sea was very warm in the autumn and the ice came middle of January. Before the beginning of February it was all over and done with. Now the first week of February it has been some nice spring feelings already. The ice melted as fast as it came, the last weeks winter  storm blew the floating ice flakes away.

Now we wait for the spring. There will be cold periods but the neck of the winter is broken!
