The good news about setting our clocks 1-hour ahead is that we are truly 'springing forward.' Today in Budapest it was 63 F (17 C) and sunny. It felt so good. Our spring has been cold--even snow--up until today. Soon enough we'll be complaining about the heat which can reach 100+ F (38+ C).
Thank goodness our new flat has those old thick (really thick!) European walls with a large shade tree in our front yard.
