Snow!

2 12 2010

The weather in central Europe has been a bit chilly. I’m seeing reports of snow blocking airports and cars driving off roads. Apparently Switzerland has about a meter metre of snow and Munich about a foot. Parts of England are shutting down. It’s December, so even though it’s early, a bit of cold weather isn’t terribly unusual. After all, I am here trying to avoid winter.

Just in case you might be worried about the weather in Santorini: today it is a little humid and we needed sunglasses for breakfast on the terrace. We expect a breeze later on, and hopefully it is a little overcast to take the edge off the sun. Jurg and Rahel went swimming yesterday, I chose to read. I might go today.

However, we are told this weather is unseasonably warm. Maybe it will get cooler at some point. But for now we have food in the supermarket (the ferries are running again), and while the sun is shining (and I still have no rear wheel), I don’t see much point going anywhere.

What is this new METER that you use to measure the snow depth? and then switch to IMPERIAL measurement for another area of europe?

It could be weeks. The wheel hasn’t got to Germany yet…

My spelling was an attempt at being internationally friendly, but evidently I have spent too long outside of the colonies (and I did spell metre wrong).

How long will it be until you obtain your rear wheel and then resume your suffering? Santorini will never be the same.

Have recently spent your cash (plus a little of mine) on a new pushy.
Merida frame
Ultegra group set
Mavic wheels, with excellent rear hub!

Let me know if you want me to send your reliable old mountain bike over.

That sounds like a good investment. Be sure to call it Uncle Steve. As in “Bye kids, Uncle Steve and I are off to work”, “I’m going for a ride with Uncle Steve” or “Uncle Steve’s sleeping in the garage tonight”. Best to avoid using the particle “on” a much as possible 🙂

Get some lights for it.

Sorry, WordPress does that all by itself. And besides it really is snowing here!
