Cold, colder, freezing cold...

Winter is comming... is not appropriate quote at the moment as the winter is already here. We still don't have snow, although it snowed on sunday afternoon and half of the night, but we got (thank you) only 3 centimeters (arround 1 inch) of it.


The wind blowed from the north half of last week and it still blows from there. Every day is stronger and with the power, it gets colder and colder. The temperature doesn't rise above 0°C. It stays below it also during the day. Although it's arround -5°C, because of the wind it feels like -15°C and I'm not joking. And I'm serious when I tell you that yesterday morning the river Savinja, that runs through the city we life in started to freeze. This is realy rarely to see.

The weather forecast for the next 10 days is not any better. Yes, it will be mostly sunny (exception of Friday, Saturday and Sunday - they say it might start to snow) but the temperatures will be even lower than today or yesterday. 


Well, everything is not so 'black' (although it will be snowing)... after all we are quite lucky... Seeing in the news how they struggle because of the snow and the cold in the East part of Europe (Romania, Ukraine, Poland, Serbia...) I should stop complaining... 


But our problem is... how to get Patrik to let his cap on his head. Yes, our thinking (mine and from Janez - we have a good reason for that) is that when the temperatures are not lower than -5°C he and Loris don't need to wear a cap, after the temperature falls below that they have to have a cap on the head. 

With Loris there is no problem. She wears it even if the temperature is not that low - she is quite oposite than I was... I hated caps... And this way is also Patrik. As we didn't insist on having a cap on his head, he doesn't want to have it. He is satisfied with his hood of his jacket...


And I know, we will get - again - a looooooong looks from the people we will meet...
