january 24th, first day of winter

So, by traditional Czech reckoning, it came more than two months late, this morning we woke up with a blanket of snow all around outside.


And skiing enthusiasts everywhere rejoiced. One student said that he was going skiing right after school was over today. There was a giddy student snowball fight during lunchtime. All of this after what was recently declared officially the warmest Czech winter since records started to be kept in 1775.

As they say in their three-fold way, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Simply wonderful.

I wouldn't mind a day or two of snow - considering we've had one of our "coldest" winters in a long time...and I don't think the temperature has dropped below 30.

joel! it's kerry cass....i have found out that you write on this more then xanga....

the reason i'm writing is my old roomate from vanguarad, bethany, and her husband just moved to prague to teach english and work for her dad's company. they work at a school by wenceslas square and they live near the Flora metro stop on a street called korunni. i hope some of this rings bells to you, because it doesn't to me!

anyway, they are looking for friends and some city hosts...and i thought immediately of you and your wife! let me know if i could give them your email or number or skype or something!

best wishes,
kerry cass
