First commute of 2011 ! It was expected only next Monday, holidays in Poland (then no commuting for Dorota), but viruses kind of anticipated it. I had to remove in rush the studded tyres yesterday evening, odd since long, and pump back the standard ones.
A warm wind has been blowing during the last few days removing the last puddles of water, but it stopped today to give place again to frost. What's more the Wroclaw city services had to the brilliant idea to clean the streets, which were left with all their snow-remaining rubbish as late as now.
Clear blue sky, dry air, frozen ground, sunrise on the pedestrian bridge that crosses the Odra, my favourite spot. Everything I like !
The works on the bridge over the river Olawa
I saw in December are almost finished, but engines dug little ruts in the piece of trail that goes in the forest.
I have rarely seen the level of both the Odra and the Olawa so low. Just like all snow had already melted. Early february, amazing when we think about the June 2010 floodings ! Looks like the spring has already started.
Hopefully in the beginning of March temperatures will be cool enough to drop my son by bike to the kindergarden again when he's back, which he loves.
