old man winter

Wollbach playground

February 9, 2012. Down in southern Germany, we were convinced it was going to be a mild winter. We were wrong. The sub-zero temperatures have lasted a couple weeks now, and there's no sign of warming ahead. The students found pieces of cardboard in the recycling bin, and have been wearing off the snow from the little hills in the playground. At the end of the day, there are boots, mittens, scarves, hats, and pieces of cardboard everywhere. Spring seems a long way off...

This drawing even makes me feel more cold.

Sorry about that! :) It's supposed to get warmer in the next few days.
