Monochrome Madness 3-39


On Thursday evening we got weather warnings from the weather forecasters. A serious storm was upcoming and about to cross the European mainlands during the night. Although the temperature was slightly about 0°C it was snowing. Partly, there were heavy snow storms even in the usually snow free lowlands. This storm was called “Egon”. That’s a custom for every heavy storm, low-pressure area and high-pressure area. “Egon” came from western directions. Luckily, one major part of the storm passed about 100km north of my region. Another major part started in France (more than 300000 households were reported to have no electric power – for France that means “no heating”, because the houses usually have electric heatings) and passed east of us. So, we only got a snowy cover of about 3-4 cm in thickness, but melting because of the temperatures.

The warnings were still current on Friday, also of my region, and lasted until Saturday noon. Although a heavy snow storm came up on Saturday and hindered me from visiting a friend, we have had good luck: our region was spared from the disaster.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of here Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!

    1. Thanks, Julie.
      Currently, the weather is fine again. For nearly a week the temperatures were below 0°C, even most of the daytime, despite we have had a clear blue sky and the sun smiled from above. We’re on 200m and still have some snow. So, it’s OK.
