So, after 4 years of relatively warm winters in Prague, we're finally getting a taste of good, proper cold around here. The windows in our flat are all in the slanting ceiling, and we haven't been able to see out of them for weeks for all the snow. We got about 30 cm earlier this month, and it's been so cold that most of it stayed on the ground, despite a couple of warmer days that served only to turn it from powdery fluff to thick, life-threateningly slick ice. Tonight, we expect a low of -25C, a "frostbite alert" and this week, should get something like 15 more cm of snow. And, you know... it's not January when the weather is coldest around here, it's February.
We have to be bundled up to the eyeballs to venture out, lately, and when we do, it hurts our eyeballs.
All this sounds like complaining, I know -- but it isn't. The city is lovely in snow, and cold weather is just an excuse to stay in and bake!
Here's me ready to brave the outdoors.
