Today the temperature gauge in my window says 12 C. (that’s about 54 F) and it’s raining off and on. In fact, it rains a lot here. It is said that the rain is one of the reasons the Irish monk Gallus settled here as a hermit about 612. Regardless of that, no matter what the weather it never lasts long. We are close to both the Alps and the Bodensee so it changes a lot. To date my most extraordinary weather moment was walking home after midnight last winter in a snowstorm with lightning and thunder bouncing off the mountains.

To my Houston friends: note that I am still wearing a jacket in late May! K Q:-)

P.S. It turns out that our delightful Amsel sings in the rain too.
