Wintry musings

Snow in Paris is quite rare. In the ten years I made the city my home I cannot recall any snowfall at all.

Nor did snow often clog the streets of London in the decade when I lived there.

Here in Munich snow can be expected every winter, often remaining on the ground for weeks at a time. But while Paris and London are dusted with white Munich is merely freezing.

I note that on the 6th of February last year I landed back here in Munich after my three months wasting time in Abu Dhabi. And on this blog I note with relief that the temperature was plus 13 degrees. Today the mercury is hovering around minus 13 degrees. If it had been that cold a year ago I suspect I might have crawled back on that Etihad plane!
