Admin sent me out to check out the water temperature in the lakes around Kiev.
The river itself - Dnepr - is still a little cool - too cold to swim in it, but I did swim in a lake.
Nice - about 25 this morning, and the water was warm, certainly in the shallow part of the lake - perhaps 1m deep.
Forecast for the next week. Quite warm, mid to upper 20s... Say high 70s, low 80s in American money.
Blue sky, some clouds.
Actually , I think parts of the south need some rain now for the crops. It has been fairly dry for several weeks.
I spoke to somebody who lives near Moldova yesterday on the phone. She said it was really dry there now.
