Today it's much warmer, the sky is blue and the snow is nearly gone.
But yesterday when I woke up and felt the cold I was anxious to check if I would get more nice views from the balcony. It was good to see that there was even more snow, and that it covered most hills in the valley.
And when I think I used to find Britain too cold... Yes, temperatures are much lower than here, and yes, houses are mostly old and badly insulated. But they have central heating, and oh, how I miss that!
