Making do without snow
When it became apparent back in December that we wouldn’t be blessed with a “white” Christmas in Prague this year, my children weren’t the only ones disappointed. Stoically, I reassured them (and myself) that long before spring came, we’d undoubtedly have more than enough of our share of snowy, wintery weather. Memories from last winter, shoveling snow from the driveway, traversing snow-covered country roads to get to and from school and tiptoeing around the treacherous icicles dangling from the city’s rooftops, are etched firmly in my mind. But Czech winters are supposed to be tough.
