Over the past week or so, much of Europe has been experiencing extreme frost. Yesterday night, the temperature dropped to minus 13 degrees Celsius, at the moment it’s minus eleven degrees. And I’m in North-Western Germany which rarely gets extreme frost due to the relative proximity of the North Sea.
Nastier than the frost, at least for me, is the high air pressure zone that is the cause of it. Because my body really doesn’t like high air pressure – it reacts with headaches to high air pressure or extreme changes. It doesn’t help that many people don’t take weather-related headaches seriously – quite a lot of people chalk it up to hysteria. And if you have the misfortune to be affected by high air pressure like me, it’s even worse, because the majority of people get symptoms from low pressure, not high pressure.
Friday night, we even got some snow to go with the frost. It wasn’t a whole lot, just a light dusting really, but this may nonetheless be the most lasting snow we’re seeing this winter.
