Yesterday

The snow continues to fall in Germany, as it is across much of Europe. Living in Edinburgh, we hardly had any snow* and if it did fall, it usually only lasted a short time before melting. So it’s been a big change to look out the window every day and see everything covered in snow.

We were told many times this summer that Wuerzburg, on average, has higher temperatures than across much of Germany and with some of the hottest summer weather. We were also told that typically, it doesn’t get as much snow, either (being a warmer climate and all). I’m not sure whether this information was correct or not, because we’ve had a pretty wintry winter so far, and it’s only just begun.

Yesterday the Mr. and I took a long, winter walk up in the vineyards to get some fresh air and enjoy the wintry landscape. Today, the snow has been falling steadily in big, fat, wet flakes so decided to not venture outside at all. I love looking at the snow from the cozy interior of our flat, but if this kind of heavy snowfall doesn’t let up before I start a language class in January it’s going to be rather more tiresome. And I feel very sorry for all the people trying to fly out of both Germany and the UK right now to be with family for the holidays. We’ve heard some of their stories, and it’s a real nightmare.

*Of course, Edinburgh is experiencing a freakish amount of snowfall this winter that has just about crippled the city. So it looks like Mother Nature was determined to give us a hardcore winter this year no matter where we lived!

    I wish we could complain about snow here in Tallahassee! The weather forecast for Christmas day is a low of 25F and 50% chance of rain. Still, wouldn’t bet on a white Christmas for me. Instead, all of the cold and none of the rewards. Enjoy your white landscape!

  2. Just watched Love Actually again last night. I had forgotten what a great film it is, and so funny. And that it’s rated R! It’s sort of strange that they made a (mostly) feel-good holiday film but with the language, etc. that gave it an R rating. It totally goes against the grain.
