Winter is here
Check out the forecast. Basically now Dresden will look like this for the next 16-20 weeks. No warmer. no colder. none sunnier. It challenges my motivation to ride my bike into work. It's really quite annoying.
Oh, and the days become way too short. Now's the time when I can leave home in darkness and get home in darkness.
For North American readers:
quick, guess what city has an equivalent latitude to Dresden, Germany (About 2 hours south of Berlin):
Answer: none of the above. Go north from NYC to Montreal, then go THAT DISTANCE north AGAIN. And you're in Dresden territory.
The sun sets around 4pm.
Boston is on latitude with central Spain. Paris and London hit up in Canada. weird, huh?
North Carolina meets up with Africa.
