It's been painfully cold and incredibly snowy here in Prague for the past week or so. Yesterday morning, it was minus 17 Celsius (or about 1 degree Fahrenheit) at our house in the village of Cerny Vul, west of Prague.
We've also received around 25 centimeters (about 10 inches) of snow, which basically paralyzed the city on Wednesday night and Thursday. I can't remember when we've had this much snow or it's been this cold so early in the year.
Here are a few photograpsh I've taken over the past few days.
The driving was atrocious on Wednesday night. Buses couldn't make it up the Suchdol hill, so passengers were forced to trudge up the long, steep hill in the road in the driving snow.
