Stormy weather

Germany is hidden by a big storm today. It is so uncomfortably outside. Its stormy and it is raining much. I don't brought Fiona to the willow today, was she doesn't like much. She don't like to stay the whole day into the staples, but it is better with this kind of weather. So she got some extra food from me and it seems that this make her a little bit happier.
I hope that all things at our house will be safe. We have no money to pay a new roof. Maybe the storm getting that worst as they say. I hate this kind of weather. It should be better by tomorrow.
My cats don't want to go outside at the moment, I can understand them so well.
Here is a photo, I taken some minutes ago. Sure, you cannot see the storm well, but the dark clouds.

Back again

We are back since Saturday, but it was too much to do the last days. Now I'm back from Fiona and I use the time before my nephew comes. It's still a much to do. Why is this so after a vacation?
The week was nice, but as you can believe, we had no snow. It was too warm. The temperatures had been around 10°C, not really winter temperatures. So we made other things, than to made sledge rides or cross country skiing. We visited the castle Linderhof, went to Kempten, to Lindau (not that we had been there in summer enough), went to a swimming hall and so on. Some days it has rained. I will post some pictures of the vacation soon.

Away for vacation

We will leave for vacation tomorrow morning. We going there <klick> We want to make a winter vacation there, but it seems that this will be more a spring vacation. Here is a picture of a webcam from today. As you see is there not much snow. And the weather prognose isn't better, there should be warmer temperatures and rain. So we must find other things to do as we normally want to do.
