    Snow for Stormraaf

    Okay, some pics from right now directly in front of the house where I live. Sorry for the small radius, hehe, I'll take some more tomorrow with light (and shoes on and dressed according to the weather )


    right from the door, the poor bush


    the little stony wall actually is about 40cm high, now just a little hill of snow


    another bush


    a bit of the sidewalk

    This thread is a nice distraction from having to spend Yule in sunny, 40C weather indeed.

    Yeah, I am east of you and had over 20 inches. Most I've seen in a long time. Would take pictures for Stormraaf too but I have no digital camera

    I´m glad that you´ve got some snow in NRW. It´s a normal amount of snow for average Bavarian winters, anyway.

    This is not the first time this year we've had snow. We had a cold week in October where we already had snow. That was pretty harsh - first week of the semester we were sweating in the sweltering heat at approx. 25-30°C --- the next week it was -5°C, snow and wind.

    Nonetheless, we've had an "appearance of winter" as well. When I came home on Saturday, the bus didn't even make it to the village and I had to take a taxi from the next village onwards. On Friday, we had our coldest day, -15°C in the morning, -11°C at noontime and -17/-18°C when I came home from town.

    But TBH, I've had worse, I was sleighing "a few miles away" (well, about 20km) in Seefeld at -28°C a few years ago. We've also had more than a meter of snow before the front door before. At 900m above sea level you simply don't call it "a harsh winter" if it takes you less than 15 minutes to clear the front drive.

    It's been warmer today already, approx. 0°C - I'll hopefully take a few pictures later on today or tomorrow morning. We've got postcard conditions, will be something for the lowlanders to behold. I must say that we have less snow than up north though, but just as impressive overall.

    Alas, the snow isn't "compact" enough yet for snowball fights. I tried it the other day, perhaps now that it's warmer it'll rain a bit to make the snow better for snowball battles.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Okay, more snow for Stormy
    I'm sorry though, due to that we chatted so long last night, I've overslept a bit *ehem* and now it's dark already. But right when I got up I took some from out of my kitchen window.


    Left of the window. When you look closely, in the corner the snow has piled up to a little hill, didnt dare to open the other window, hehe


    Right from the window... I just hope the roof stands the snow. It's an old house...


    Close up of the trees in the backyard.


    Left over the roof with some trees. A small forest starts there.

    You could make some motif wallpapers of the pics, so that you at least can dream of some snow

    OK I know it is just a light dusting, but pretty all the same.

    I tried to get one of the ski slopes, but it did not come out very well. I think I may have to hike to the very bottom to get a good picture. Besides the snow on the slopes right now is made by machines.



    I hope you see this for the 25th.

    Hehe, it gets old quickly. I just came back from holiday in frozen Switzerland and I'm so glad to be sweating in the heat again.
