Now we are in the middle of winter. Winter of this year brings a lot of rain and there is a lot of snow in the mountains, meaning that a lot of mountain water flows into the reservoirs and fills them for the summer water reserve for the irrigation areas. Every house has a heater to keep it warm. Most people need a room temperature between 20 and 22 degrees C to feel good. Some people make the mistake of overheating their house at 25 degrees or more and being lightly clothed in the house. That costs more energy and that means more money spending. You can avoid this by dressing a little warmer, for example with a wool sweater instead of a shirt or blouse. It is healthier for the body to consume calories and generate body heat and it is healthier for the energy costs if you can be satisfied with 20 degrees. Electricity, gas or wood costs are highest in winter. It looks very wintry in the garden. The broadleaf or deciduous trees look very bald without leaves. The roses have now lost their leaves and can be trimmed and fertilized for the coming season. The cabbage and cauliflower planted in autumn is now ready for the upcoming meals. The night frost colors the geranium leaves brown and they will soon have to be cut back. Winter is football time and this month is football festival for football fans. In the next month the final is played.
