For those of you expats who don’t pay much attention to Czech-language weather reports, I wanted to point out that it would probably be wise to break out the long underwear and the ice skates this weekend: It’s supposed to get down to -20 Celsius Friday night. That’s -4 Fahrenheit, or butt-cold in other words.

And here it was starting to get warm last week; I was even thinking of getting back in the habit of riding my bike to work. Not for a little while yet, I’m afraid.
