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.
