I'm dreaming of a white christmas

Yesterday, snow flurries over the Black forest..

Just now Snow in Basel


A snowed in Iron Pig

Big flakes, nice big white snowy snow flakes.

Without men civilization would last untill the oil needs changing.

Did not get out much this weekend, what is it like your side of the Röstigraben?

Re: I'm dreaming of a white christmas

Talked to my brother in Zug today. Light snow and temperatures around 30 F.

Was mostly clear, light wind and 67 F here. Went for a nice ride on the LT.

Are you snowed in for the winter? Around Atlanta, Georgia I'll typically loose two to four weeks to snow/ice over the winter, +/- a week based on the progression of global warming.

Snowed in? WOW! You would really have to be living on the pointy bits of deepest Swisscongo for that.
Here even if the snow is over the rooftops people would be waiting impatiently for the snow eaters at 7.30 and annoying services every five minutes.

Ean,
JUST DO IT!
This was attached to a picnic bench in South Africa along the Indian Ocean coast (Simon's Town) and reinforced the decision to take my 1st tour of Europe (French & Spanish Pyrenees) over seven years ago.

Well I am sure that the Euro brethren will see you right if you jump on a plane.

That'd be amazing for sure. The only problem is I work full time and my wife works part time and we have a 2 year old that requires medical treatment for a cyst in her brain. Sooo, that's the focus of money right now.

That totally sounds like a spammer message. But it's true. No pity party here though. I'll make it to Europe and enjoy some real German beer soon enough.

Pretty cold these mornings. I wondered one morning if I was waking up in Oslo when opening the bedroom window...

Have a nice day!

Re: I'm dreaming of a white christmas

Beautiful day today but the bike stayed in the garage so I could get the Christmas lights strung on the palm tree in the court yard!. Next the boss wants replace the pool lights with green and red before friends arrive this weekend.
