There is not much to say about the current weather situation. It is both fantastic (wonderful white snow landscapes and comfortable cozy get-togethers indoors are the perfect pre-Christmas warm up) and terrible (it’s cold as a mother out there, traffic is stuck all the time and if you haven’t yet landed butt first on ice then you have about 3 months left to discover this traditional Berlin winter practice). Suddenly everything has changed. In the next couple of days before Christmas, the city will become calmer and less frenetic. People will leave to see their families in the rest of Germany and spend most of their days at home, warming up their feet. Nobody likes the cold very much, but the snow is amazing. As long as the sun shines and it’s not raining I might even prefer the winter to the summer in some respects. The weather forecast says it’s going to be –11° in the upcoming week. Get yourself hiding, y’all!
