This is it. This is what it’s like here right now: a never-ending loop of winter. If you take last “summer” into consideration, this is like month 18 of winter for Berlin. And I have had it. At this time of the year, it is perfectly reasonable to expect the days to get progressively warmer and brighter, but in this vortex of darkness they seem to be collapsing on themselves and I am quickly losing hope that spring will ever be able to emerge from the rubble.
We are getting ready to head out of here in a few days, which should be like pushing the ejection seat on this nightmare. But we are going to Minneapolis, where the weather is just as bad. However, if I know anything about Minneapolis weather, it’s that and it can go from miserable to glorious (or vice versa) in a matter of hours. So for the time being, I’m pinning my hopes on option #1.
Next post I promise a departure from the doom and gloom!
