Winter



Christmastime in Nurnberg = the famous Weinachtsmarkt. We stopped there the weekend it opened, and were greeted with warm Gluhwein (hot wine with spices and something else, all served in a little green Santa boot) and waffles hot out of the iron. We are officially In The Spirit now.

For a reminder of what winter is REALLY like, read this article about the blizzard that hit my hometown last weekend. (Apologies if you're reading this after they took the story down, they don't keep a news archive out thar in the sticks.) Note that the superintendent of schools' name is Charlie Brown.
