Jeff and I went out today and wow, was it warm! Our thermometer showed an unbelievable 13°C and the real temperature was probably about 11°C (52°F). We were shocked when we stepped out and were hit by air that not only lacked the cold bite we got used to in the past four months (seems like eternity by now), but contained noticeable traces of WARMTH. We became almost ecstatic and big smiles spread over our faces. Instead of taking the tram to our destination, we happily walked, scarfless, gloveless, hatless, unzipping our jackets as we warmed up and pointing out people who weren’t even wearing jackets (gasp!). We didn’t care when it started drizzling and we thought, let anything come down as long as it’s not SNOW!
We’re going to have lunch at the Klášterní pivovar Strahov tomorrow. It’s set in a beautiful location that just invites you for a walk. I checked the weather forecast and couldn’t believe my eyes. It shows a whopping 17°C for Prague, 19°C in Southern Moravia (63 – 66°F)! What a great way to welcome Daylight Saving Time!
Too many exclamation points in this post? Well, I’m excited, believe you me!
Your post reminds me of spring when I lived at home in Montreal. On the first few days of spring, everyone goes outside, the sidewalks are filled with grinning folks, who are not wearing hats! And the smell of new life and melting snow is a delight.
I’m envious – we are still having real winter over here. A lot of snow and temperature is under 0 C…((((
I WANT SPRING!!!!
I believe spring will come your way soon. It’s time for a change!
