I imagine (probably rightly) that some of you may snicker (hopefully under your breath) with all of my whining about the weather. Believe me when I tell you that I’m ready to stop, too! However, this is the winter that just won’t quit. We were given a little taste of spring (she’s such a tease!) last week, complete with SUNSHINE if you can believe that! This has been the grayest winter in German experience for the last 20 years, or so I’ve heard. But… check this link out if you are interested in a good laugh and a little education about German weather/solar energy: Germany’s massive sunniness; I’d watch the video, personally, but only after looking at the rest of the page. I enjoy laughing with silly people, though, and I can only imagine that she was intending to be funny, but it only made the pain of this morning that much worse. 4 inches of snow by noon (I hear… as you will soon hear, I am boycotting). And it is still snowing. Only 1 inch was predicted, but I think that the Germans may be infinitely optimistic about their weather, at least in the forecasting of it… they talk about it like the next apocolypse is coming (seriously… at “Bakery Day” last week a lovely, intelligent woman positively turned ashen when discussing the weather forecast for this week. I wasn’t sure if her forecast came with zombies, or if she has worse winter-phobia than I do!)! In any case, I have decided to boycott the weather until it improves. I’m still working out the details of how that is going to work, exactly, but I’ll let you know.
In any case, I thought that I would share with you thing that make me happy! Some of them here in my happy little flat, some of them in Hannover. I’ll share more about our (fabulous) trip to Hannover and Hamburg soon, but for now, I just wanted to share happy pictures!
Happy Tuesday, Y’all!
