Hail, sleet and snow in May

Gulls in the snow, May 4.

The birds do not seem as offended as the human by the hail, sleet and snow that seems to be never ending. Where is spring and summer for that matter?  Icelanders celebrated the First Day of Summer on the last Thursday in April, as always. That is the optimistic Icelandic spirit. Now, however, we are crying for summer.  According to the latest weather forecasts there may actually be some improvements on the way.
