Just when I thought it couldn't get any colder...

...night falls, and I'm left wondering how the Czechs manage to keep their noses from turning bright red (like mine was when I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror). Hmmmm. I think Russia has just moved down the list and Central and South America have jumped up to the top (along with Australia).

First day in Prague pretty cool, though.

THanks for the kind and concerned thoughts. I won't respond individually until I get settled (and have cheaper/free internet). Keep posting/writing, though. I love opening my email box and finding little notes from friends.

rozuminte Cesky?

Keep warm. Check your email & your phone (tried to call today, but couldn't get through).

Please don't put St. Petersburg off your list! Perhaps you could go there for six months over the summer.
I hope you get settled in soon. Raise a dumpling for me.

So how cold is it anyway? Here in the Ozarks we had a globally-warmed 60-degree high today with a full week of 40s coming up.

Creepy. Could Al Gore be right? I'll check out his movie, An Inconvenient Truth, later this week for the real lowdown.

Denver has another full-blown howling blizzard going with a couple of feet of snow again expected. No global warming for them right now.

I still say you would look terrific in sable topper. (Remember our chat about Gorky Park and the sables?) The Czechs might not think anything smacking of Russian monopoly as a friendly gesture; on second thought, skip the sable hat.

Best of luck,

My understanding of Global Warming from An Inconvenient Truth is that it is not just about every place becoming warmer, but about weather patterns changing drastically as well. Thus, I imagine the blizzards in Denver could be a result of these changes.

Also, my roommate assures me that this is the warmest winter Prague (and the Czech Republic) has ever seen (or seen in a long, long time--anyway, that it is unnaturally warm).

A mess.

About the Russians:

1. It is still on the list. That was just my initial reaction. But it the globe keeps warming up, St Petersburg may be tolerable (ie, tropical) in a couple of years (if that long).

2. I don't think the Czech hate the Russians anymore. At least, that's what my (Czech) roommate says. So Sable might be okay.

Margaret S would have a huge problem with you wearing sable, but I guess you could justify it because the damn creatures look like ferrets.
