Springtime in Korea

Just as I'm reading news that Ontarians are experiencing one of the snowiest winters on record and bracing for yet another huge snowstorm, I'm celebrating the arrival of spring here in Korea.

It happened suddenly and unexpectedly: I went to bed all cozy under my blankets and woke up the next morning to bright sunshine and temperatures rising into the teens. And amazingly, it's stayed that way for weeks. I swear the birds are chirping so loud, I feel like I'm in a Disney movie.
