Monochrome Monday 5-40

It’s winter, here, you know. Snow is usually part of the winter. In the past, I noted several times, snow isn’t that common in winter in my region anymore. During my childhood, the temperatures were below 0°C from November until End of March. Snow was on the ground for building snowmen, go sledging or having snowball-fights. Lakes and ponds had frozen surfaces to go ice-skating all winter.

Over the years, the start of winter got postponed. Less snow from year to year. Nowadays a thin snowy blanket is a rare event. Nearly no-one knows how to drive under these circumstances. Traffic-jams are the result and a number of car accents.

Nowadays even the freezing days are rare. Ice-skating on a pond or a lake? Don’t think about it. Even when there is an ice surface, this layer is too thin for step upon it. Nowadays, most time of the winter the temperatures are between 5°C and 15°C instead of below 0°C.

Take care!
