Snow cover

On Saturday, Mausi spent over an hour shovelling snow off the sidewalk outside her house and her drive. Over 20cm had fallen overnight and more descended during the day. The autobahns were chaotic with the heavy trucks stuck, sliding and blocking lanes and slip roads. Bad driving practice also played a part and one person died in the many pile-ups.

As Mausi reported, the forestry people's helicopter found itself abandoned and forlorn under its covering of snow in the field behind her house. The helicopter is currently working dusting the area with chalk, presumably to keep the soil balance right as the snow melts and the ground water is replenished.
