Valentine’s Day Cake – Did I deserve this?

General Comments Off on Valentine’s Day Cake – Did I deserve this?


So, we are just through Valentine’s Day, and I must stay, I was quite impressed. To begin with, on the day of the 14th, I had some important things to do at work, and I went home later than usual, I left office at 8PM.

…we had this bitterly cold weekend. The sun was still shining during the day, and temperatures went above 5C, but the nights were way below freezing. At home, we have lots of windows, and as the sun was heating up the large surface glasses, we ended up turning down the heat throughout the days, but outside was crazy cold with the strong winds.

This was the weather reported by a weather service on the iPhone saturday morning:

And a picture my dad took on Sunday morning at Lake Balaton.

These are grass and other plants by the lake shore, and as the strong wind blew the water out of the lake, it got frozen all around the vegetation. Quite a shot I must say. For a full size version (still small though), click here.
