No snow

Nice and calm third advent today. I wasn't up in the attic today, since it is too cold. We had a couple of snowflakes, but not real snow.
I like the snow very much. It slows down the cars and brings this certain atmosphere of peace I enjoy so much. Hope, Gods will let it snow here soon, and long. After all, the Vosgian Mountains once where known for hard, snowy winter, as soldiers of WW1 and WW2 bitterly remember. The Elderly here tell stories on how deceased people couldn't get buried in Winter because the soil was too frozen. Later, the Vosgian Mountains became a well visited place for winter sports.  This is all gone now.
 In the 11 years I live here, I experienced 2, maybe 3 winters with snow for more than   a week. The rest is just this wet and cold in-between weather that sucks everybody. I'm a child of the middle-European Ice age heritage, I WANT snow! 
Fuck Climate Change.


I spent much time working on the Bête des Vosges Movie. I am still as passionated by this project than I was at the beginning, if not even more. It's so fascinating to see JFK acting in this haunting story and feel with all my senses how much he enjoys it

Hier schneit es seit Freitag fast ununterbrochen, ich mag das garnicht, da schlägt mein südeuropäisches Erbgut durch - außerdem ist es doof beim Autofahren. Das einzig Gute, es sind keine kreischenden Kinder und grölende Jugendliche auf den Straßen, denen ist es zu kalt.

Eben, das Gesocks wird fern gehalten!
Wir sollten das Wetter tauschen können.

Ich würde dir gern mein Wetter schenken. Ganz viel Schnee und wenn man am Morgen aus dem Fenster blickt sieht man nichts als weiß. Mir wäre es lieber, es würde regnen...

Schnee ist in meinen Augen besser als Regen-Matschewetter, aber lange Kältephasen kosten halt schon ganz schön Geld in Form, von Heizkosten... bin ganz froh,da ss es bis vor kurzem so mild war.

Die letzten zwei-drei Winter waren hier hart und lang, mit Schnee zu Ostara (und sogar 1-2 Mal auf den "Gipfeln" bis Beltane!!!), bäh!

Hm, I'm not too crazy about snow, at least not large amounts. I like playing in it, but when it gets so out of control that people get hurt it makes me feel all weird inside.

I like that pic of JFK, he looks like he is having fun indeed.
