We just had another huge snowfall last night. Well, huge by northern German standards, which is admittedly a wimpy affair in comparison to what the east coast of Canada and the US are used to. Still, all very exciting for us indeed.
Our crazy neighbour was out last night until midnight shoveling the snow off the sidewalk in front of his apartment building.
Sara and I went for a walk to the train station this afternoon. What usually is a 10-15-minutes walk took more than 45 minutes. We slipped and slided (SP) as though we were trudging over loose sand dunes and not snow. We were planing on walking home, but took the bus instead. (I agree, we are not hardy troopers at all.)
The grant proposal for the new research project is sewed up and submitted. Think we've done a good job of capturing the scope of our vision. Please, can you all say your prayers or keep your fingers crossed that the foundation agrees to fund the project?
