April 2013 Newsletter

When I started thinking about the April newsletter, a week before the end of March, I imagined it might start “At long last, winter seems to be over, and spring is upon us …”. However, as of 29/3/2013, there is again snow on the ground in the western suburbs of Prague. Night frosts are forecast for the foreseeable future, and there is no mention of when the daily maximum temperature might reach double figures. This has been the coldest March in my 22 winters in the Czech Republic, but it is not altogether a bad thing.
