The Czech Republic ace has scored in all five of Hearts' SPL games so far this season, helping to fire them to the top of the table.
However, the on-loan Marseille man says that he is not certain to remain in Edinburgh - citing the weather as a major factor.
"Back home everybody asks me about the Scottish league, the weather and the women. There is only one problem - the Scottish weather," said Skacel.
"It's a good start for the team and for me, but we will see if I will stay.
"My record for a season is nine goals with Slavia Prague but the goals are not important for me, it is important that we take three points."
Jambos boss George Burley has praised Skacel's versatility, but has no intentions of moving him from his current position.
"I was aware Rudi is versatile, can play anywhere on the left and play in the centre of midfield," said Burley.
"Rudi played at left-back a lot last season for Panathinaikos and his strength is his energy, he loves joining in and has a role in the team where he is allowed to do that.
"It is about trying to get the best out of everybody and Rudi has enjoyed having that little bit of freedom on the left-hand side.
"I wouldn't dream of moving him back to left-back at the moment.
"To score five goals in five games is tremendous, but he is very much a team player."
