More snow ...

The Freiwilliger Feuerwehr Station in Watzhahn.
The back of our house - note the Gazebo roof load!
Our back garden - the snow cover is pretty deep.
The snow stopped briefly overnight, but it looks close to 40 cm - around 15 inches for the non-metric. And there is more promised for tonight. Having shovelled the drive twice yesterday, Mausi attacked it last night and removed another 50 - 80 mm, but I still had to clear another 75 mm before she could get the car out to collect her colleague and go to work. Our neighbour's trees have suffered - the one next to our gazebo has collapsed under the weight of snow and another has split, but the Freiwilliger Feuerwehr has been busy all yesterday with accidents and today with more trees down and blocking roads.

Could be an interesting winter at this rate.
