The temperature that is!

Currently around -12 °C here between Veliko Tarnovo and Sevlievo and still falling just like the snow that has not let up for the past few days.

Our dogs love playing out in it all but it will be an extremely well wrapped up person taking them out for their walk this afternoon!

Still at least the house is warm and nice glass of malt whisky will be waiting on our return.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

The forecast advises that the temperatures will rise in the next day or two, but not above freezing until next week.

It's -13 here in Silsitra this evening and the wind is like ice... hat, coat, scarf, gloves on to go feed the dog he is just outside the balconly door in his kennel Dougie made him. That was my outing for the day

Summer has arrived!

First morning for ages when the outside thermometer shows a positive figure, now sitting nicely at +2 degrees.

T-shirt and shorts on for the dog walk this morning!

7C here in VT today, woopee! Yesterday saw our water return to the two bathrooms and the hot water also returning after two days of only a cold tap in the kitchen working, having a strip wash standing in the kitchen sink using cold water is no good!! (only joking!) Of course with the thaw came the bursting of one pipe under the kitchen sink and me with wrench in hand sorting it out. I have been starting and running the car to keep the battery up every two days, but yesterday the battery was down and so now on a trickle charge so that we can go out later today. Roll on the Summer!!

Best tip I ever had from my Bulgarian neighbour was to leave all the taps slightly open (just a slight drip) in winter. Saves frozen or burst pipes and works out a lot cheaper in the end. It worked for us!

We always do exactly the same and we have never had any problems, we also go the idea from a neighbour which leads me to think its a Bulgarian idea

Yes we do this at home in the cold period , so will do it here too. Here we take off all the taps when we leave for UK even though everything is drained down the taps split - so put salt down the drains and toilets and removed the taps.

Woke up to -17 on the thermometer this morning with glorious sunshine and clear skies, not much chance of the snow thawing here today.

Arctic cold gripped the country, began turning coastal stones perfused wave in ice sculptures. Due to the low air temperature in Varna is observed a rare phenomenon - "
boiling sea"
. It can be seen, when the air temperature falls below 10 degrees, and the sea water is still warm.

It is 5.30am here the water is flowing from the roof so it must be the snow melting or either we have rain - lazy mare all the shutters are down can't be bothered to life them to look but it is dark so won't see anything anyway so hvve to go outside on the balcony. The fire is alight and nice and cosy here. Dougie is away in Noddies land and here is not a soul on facebook so guess I will have to do a bit of Enyoy your day g
