Do You Know What This Means?

We were hoping that the lack of white smoke billowing from this smokestack was just an April Fool's joke, but apparently April 1st is the day Beijing's thermostat guy gets to do his job of shutting off the heat. Now while the sky was definitely a bit bluer today (although that may just be due to the strong winds that blew through overnight), our apartment was definitely a bit chillier. After experiencing what we've all deemed "the longest winter," I am hopeful that this is a sign of the warmer days ahead. In checking Beijing weather, it seems that the next few days will peak out at somewhere around 24 degrees Celsius. While that is encouraging news, the single digit lows are a bit less so.

I guess it's not time to pack away those extra blankets yet...
