Winter has arrived in Bregenz, Austria, 12-2014

Long faces on December 25th, no white Christmas again! And the weather forecast was cryptic, definitely rain the following day, maybe a little snow, after that it could get warm again. And then to everybody’s surprise it started snowing on the 26th, and it kept on snowing with interruptions until the 29th. Then the heavens really opened their gates: it snowed for two days straight, in total over 1 meter (over 3 feet). I grew up in this town and don’t remember anything like it.
