Many Are Cold, but Few Are Frozen

Cold, Wet and Green

The district heating went off this weekend, as it does every year on May 15, regardless of weather conditions.

This year is colder than usual; right now it's only 3°C (about 40°F) and it's raining, with snow mixing in from time to time. Not surprisingly, it feels damp and chilly indoors.

I keep drinking coffee to warm up and the caffeine is making me jumpy.

I don't like the cold and the wetness, or the vast puddles that collect in the streets. But soon everything will turn green and beautiful.

Today, I noticed buds and new leaves on the trees for the first time this year.
