This morning I looked out of my kitchen window here at home in Böhlen and once more saw everything being beautifully frosted over. After two years of spring-like temperatures in winter this is one of the coldest winters recorded in Europe for 15 years or so. Our local temperature was around -15.6 degrees Celsius at 9 A.M., so it surely was even a bit colder during the night. It may not compare to the almost Siberian temperatures recorded in Delitzsch two nights ago, which is about 50 km away, though. They had -26 degrees Celsius on Monday.
