Snow in Czechia: second half of May

The UAH satellite data show that May 2010 has been the warmest May at least since 1998 so far. However, the mountains in Northeastern Czech Republic don't seem to care: this is how the Beskydy mountains look today:



The highest peak, Lysá hora [Bald Hill], is at 1344 meters and it received 50 cm of snow in the last 72 hours. But you find lots of snow beneath the summit, too.

People in Moravia were starting to forget about the recent floods before they experienced these snowstorms. It's tough. If the Czechs were not heretics and they believed in global warming, maybe they would get one. ;-)
