The weather

I know it is has been cold in the US and that the snow has been thick and heavy in a number of places. That would normally be the case here in the Ukraine this time of year. But this year is different.

It is like fall here right now. Outside today the sun was shining and it must have been close to the 50s. It is incredible weather. Who would have thought that to get away from the cold, people could come to the Ukraine. (I said that they could--hypothetically speaking-- not that they would.)

We read yesterday or the day before that flowers had started to bloom in some park in Hamburg. Must be warm in other parts of Europe.

I just hope the fruit trees don't begin to blossom and a cold snap comes to kill them off. Would play havoc with the crops this year.
