Another very hilly day. I no sooner went down one hill, than I had to start up another – almost nothing flat today.
It was a bit more grey today, but I did see some nice sun during the afternoon, and the temperatures must have gone close to reaching double figures. We’ll crack it soon.
The Bohemian countryside is becoming slightly greener as I move south. The grass has obviously been affected by being under snow for long periods this winter. There was still a lot of old snow on the ground today, and several reasonably sized lakes that were still completely frozen over. That’s amazing for April 9. That said, it won’t take too long for them to thaw if conditions like today continue.
The milestone for today was the website reaching half a million hits – and the hit counter was only added last October. If everyone tells a friend to start following the site, it should reach a million hits before I finish in September.
