... how I feel everytime I step out of my front door! I mean, we are not the only one in Europe to have been hit by this cold front from Russia, but we are having it bad in la Suisse!
I would defy you to find a working public fountain in our neighbourhood:
and yes, this is a picture of the river Aare half-frozen.
With temperatures barely going higher than -15 celsius during the day, Alf's whiskers actually freeze and we have to dress up for an expedition to the North pole when we go for walks.
I wonder how our garden birds manage in this weather, they certainly seem to appreciate being given some food!
Wrap up warm peeps and stay indoors if you can!
PS: Thank to my friend Ashley for being brave enough to remove her gloves to take these pictures at the weekend!
