People unfamiliar with Bulgaria frequently ask me what the weather is like here. As I noted in previous posts, Bulgaria has four distinct seasons – winter, spring, summer, and fall. The weather here is classified as "Continental." This means the summers are typically mild, while the winters are cold and snowy. In general, the weather here is not as extreme as it is in places like Wisconsin. By way of example, it reached a high of 78 degrees and a low of 57 degrees on July 4th this year in Sofia. This past Christmas, the temperature in Sofia ranged from a low of 19 degrees to a high of 30 degrees. Today, it’s been snowing almost all day. Much of it is melting, but, as you can see from the photos, some of it is sticking. And I'm freezing.
I miss the garden already. It could be a long six months.
And what happened to all the red-tiled roofs?
