En avril, ne te découvre pas d’un fil

France_Paris_SpringTwo weeks ago, it was snowing. As I’m writing this, it’s about 85 degrees Fahrenheit, or almost 30 for those more comfortable with Celsius. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be about 20 degrees colder. Spring weather certainly is crazy. There’s a saying for this in French (of course). En avril, ne te découvre pas d’un fil (ohn avreel, nuh tuh day-koo-vruh pah duhn feel), which literally means, “In April, don’t take off a thread (of clothing).” The saying is a little old-fashioned, but still good advice on the unpredictability of spring weather.
