A little about the weather

The weather here is cold, as you'd expect, but it's a very different type of cold to the UK. The thermometer only tells half the story. Last week it was -20C, with cloudless skies. We took coffee outside on the balcony and basked in the sun, being sure to wear factor 30 as it's damn strong down here.

Today it's a normally sultery -10, but the 25knot wind drives straight through if you've not got a windproof on. Any exposed flesh cools quickly and thin thermal gloves are essential under the usual work mits.

It's too windy for kiting and too cold for skiing, so today I used the gym. Exercise is the only way to keep on top of Ant's superb cooking.
