With Northern Europe blanketed in snow and ice, there’s only one thing to do. Enjoy it.
Just snowed under is not how I would describe this part of Germany. As you can see in the image from outside our offices though, wonderland comes with its share of break grayness too. Schweich, next to Luxembourg, is about as cold as Siberia today. Okay, not quite so.
Meanwhile, to the North of us in France and Belgium, large areas have been put on alert for ice as temperatures fell once a damp snow blanket fell the last couple of days. Some rail stoppages and intermittent auto and flight holdups were also reported as the UK, France, Belgium, and the North of Germany were hit by “almost” unseasonable snowfall and sleet.
The good news as I type this report is that skies here have cleared off crystal blue as the temperature climbs. Just after we ordered more heating oil in a panic too – so thank us for creating conditions for Winter to leave. :) I leave you with our son’s solution to Winter 2013. When all else fails, just enjoy it.
