Let it snow...

More snow...

We were supposed to have a snow-storm last night, but thank the Gods we've been spared that. Nevertheless, it's *still* snowing.

It makes me *sooooo* happy to now be living at the feet of the mountains rather than in the midst of them, like I used to. Here at least everything's more or less flat and if I *had* to, I could walk to the supermarket. Granted, it's a 4 km / 2.5 miles walk, but I *could* do it, if necessary. But, knowing that bad weather was on its way I went shopping yesterday. ^___^

So... have a look at what winter in the *lowlands* of Southern Bavaria is like at the moment. ^^

The view out my bedroom window:



and yes... those black dots are actually snowflakes. :)


As you can see, I forgot to take the sunloungers in...

Wow! I actually had to turn our A.C. on yesterday afternoon. We get really cold, and then warm, and then really cold, again. makes for lots of angry sinuses and headaches. *Snugs you*

*gg*

I don't even *own* an AC! ^___^

It's cold. And cold. And... cold. But the heat is working fine, so I'm all nice and snug here in my house. And in the evening, I make myself a cup of hot, mulled wine, and that keeps me nice and warm, too. ^^ Oh, and the four cats, of course...

Ups and downs in weather aren't good. >.< When we have that, I get sick, too. Not that I *like* the winter, but I prefer my weather to stay constant, so my body has a chance to adapt to it.

Not that it likes this... but it's still better than last year's winter, where we had long periods of frost, but no snow. That's even *more* unpleasant...

Oooh, so beautiful!

Cloud: *wide eyes* "Ooh, lots of snow!"

I'm hoping for better weather (with that I mean sunshine) on the weekend. Then I can go out and take a few *nice* winter pictures... ^^

Well, by now there's so much snow, you can *really* romp around in it. I saw the neighbors' kids go by with sleds earlier. They'll be heading for the hill behind the village, I think. ^^

Erm, I hope your neighbors don't notice the chibi blond and tall silver-haired guy. :)

Better wrap yourselves *really* warmly! It's *cold* out there! And windy! Puntino came in just a while ago and his fur was all covered with snowflakes. ^^ So bundle up and have fun! :)

Love that lawn chairs! Maybe you can build snowmen in them wearing sun hats and sun glasses? lol

*ggg*

That's an idea! I have to wait until the snow gets wetter, though. Right now, it's really powdery and won't stick together.

Love your rack, by the way... *snicker*

Okay...I'll take yer word for it. (grew up in the tropics where "snow" and "winter" are myths you tell to little kids to get them to behave or else...)

Danke. Me and my deer head had a field day at work yesterday. I can't lie, that thing had me cracking up!

Right now, the snow is so 'dry' and light, it will drift away when you blow on it. When you want to make a snowman, it has to be wet and heavy, so it sticks. It's almost too cold right now...

We have these... hallucinations... of sun, and beaches, and palm trees, and warm, clear blue water... >.>

I can imagine! I *really* don't want to know what kind of stuff goes through your depot sometimes... >.>

It *is* very cold... *brrr* My hands don't like that at all. But the cats don't seem to mind. *gg*

Oh, the deceptiveness of 'the pretty'. Ain't so damn pretty when you have to drive in it. >_<;

Or shovel it.

I avoided the driving part, thank the Gods. Not going anywhere, nope.

So, how much do *you* have?

Not that much on the ground at the moment... maybe two inches? But it keeps snowing, and then melting, and then snowing some more. So there's a lot of ice all over the place. THAT'S the crap that makes me crazy. >_<;

Ice is evil! We're supposed to be getting 'warmer' weather this week, so we're in for our own version of 'holiday on ice' - only this one's done with cars and trucks rather than with skates...

Drive carefully, you hear? *HUG*
