We didn’t see much of the sun on the North Fork this weekend, but sometimes those somber skies make for beautiful snapshots.

Luckily, we are in the final days of gloomy weather and bare trees. Soon the cherry blossoms will pop and buds of the grape vines will break.

Check out these gray sky pics from some of our favorite North Fork Instagram artists. (more…)

"I'm in a love hate relationship with Mondays. Although the weekend is over, i look at it as an opportunity to sart over and hit the reset button. It allows me to continue working on something wih a fresh mind that I meant to finish or do last week without being too hard on myself. (Credit: @katelynnknapp)

We love seeing the North Fork through your lens.

We were treated to most unusual February days this weekend when Long Island temperatures reached a record 64 degrees on Friday and 65 on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

We were brought back down to earth on Sunday with temperatures in the 40s, but those clear, sunny skies still made for some pretty Instagram photos.

Be ready for more springlike temperatures later in the week with a high of 58 degrees predicted for Wednesday.

Here are some of our favorite NoFo Instagram shots from the weekend.

The warm sun on our faces was a welcome feeling this weekend, when temperatures reached into the 60s. But it was slightly strange to enjoy the warmth when many parts of the North Fork are still covered in snow.

Here are some of our favorite NoFo Instagram shots from this spring-like weekend.

Last Thursday’s storm dumped about a foot of snow on the East End. While that meant school closings and annoying commutes, it was also a time to take in the beauty of snow-covered farms, vines and beaches.

Here are some of our favorite NoFo Instagram ice shots from the weekend.

And how about the above photo of a hot tub set against the backdrop of a snowy vineyard? Hey @winedanddined, can we come hang out at your house?

High temperatures in the 40s may not scream beach weather, but in February you’ll find solitude, beauty and serenity on the shores of the Peconic Bay and Long Island Sound.
