These photos of this time last year will break your heart

It’s difficult to even imagine that there was a time when we felt warm. But there was.

THIS WEATHER IS, frankly, ridiculous.  It’s April on Monday, and there’s snow on the ground in many parts of the country.

Living in a snow globe is all well and good in December when there are twinkly lights and festive decorations around the place, but at this time of year it’s a different story.

We were struggling to remember what last Spring was like, so we checked the photo archives.

Ladies and gentleman, we give you this week last year.

People were lolling about in the sun.  LOLLING!  Look at them!

Alas, the warmth of the sun is but a distant memory now.  Something we’ll likely never feel again.
