Schneemann!

As temperatures dropped to -17C below in Munich and the sky became darker by the minute, we had one of the wettest, coldest, and honestly the most dreary days since we arrived in Munich. The snow didn’t stop falling all day, and then melted off several times into endless puddles of slush. In the end, it was a perfect day to stay inside and watch the sport of biathlon, which seems to be on Eurosport every day right now. But in my one trip out of the apartment, I found this lone snowman, which made me laugh. The rough weather didn’t seem to slow many people down though. Munich is really built around this weather, and the fact that the entire city is relatively flat and a great train system certainly helps with traffic flow. The skies are supposed to clear and be a mix of sun and snow for the next few days – but the cold weather will remain.

Brrrr...boy I'm glad I live in Florida. But I made a lot of snowmen in my younger days in Minnesota!
