Last night, it snowed for the first time this winter (well, autumn).
The Kyiv winter of 2005-2006 was one of the coldest winters in 100 years. The average high temperature was well below minus 10, and there were a few days that the temps dipped to minus 30 and beyond (celcius).
Winter 20, Global Warming 0.
When Mr Moi and I first arrived in Kyiv, the snow came the week after we arrived (which was a year ago, this weekend gone). Then the snow melted, and it was grey and snowless until February. It was the warmest winter like, ever.
Global Warming 100, Winter 0.
So last night’s snowfall (defying the predictions of all the weather outlets) got winter off the mark. We’ll see how this year pans out. I even bought a big puffy coat filled with down to get me through this winter. Hopefuly I’ll get to use it.
