snow on weeping willowIt's very, very cold here this morning.


I wonder if I have ever known it to be this cold before?

Here in Cologne it is so cold that people are skating on park lakes. I, however, have a phobia* of ice, so I won't be joining them.

*My phobia is based on rational thinking - ie I find that slipping over is not usually fun. Luckily my phobia only affects me in winter. I feel sorry for people who fear spiders, for those wee beasties are omnipresent.

I think the fear of falling over on slippery ice is too rational to be a phobia!

You win on the coldness front - I think the worst we've had was about minus six!
