Break out the electric blanket. After a sunny, Nauryz, the temperature has been hovering around freezing, which is warm in Astana. But now they’re calling for more snow and the high below 0C this week. If we get the usual April blizzard where snow sticks on the ground for a good week, I will seriously consider job offers in the Bahamas. On the other hand, we are up to about 12 hours of sunlight a day, which helps a lot.
