Loving the Mild Winter in Bavaria

Wow! it is indeed a very nice winter we had this time! Not too much snow and I guessed, it only snowed three to five times and it did melted immediately because the weather was too warm to hold it. I believed since over 10 years of living in Bavaria, Germany, this is the first time I  experience a very mild winter in this country.

When other parts of the globe are having heavy snow at the moment  and  seldom had snow during the past winters or centuries ago,  Germany on the other hand is having a very mild winter.

I am wondering if  this mild winter we are having right now is an effect of global warming.  I guess, yes. There are  times when our temperature reaches from 4 to 12 degree Celsius which is really not  normal for a winter weather.   Normally during  winter, we  reach  sub-zero temperature up to -20 Celsius. This is the time when it really snowed too much and ally you see everywhere are snow. This winter, it did not happened.

During the past winter seasons, this stream in our area is normally frozen. Now,  the water continues to flow.

These trees were normally full of snow, now  they are happily dancing when a strong wind or breeze blows.

It is actually an advantage for us if the weather is not too cold during winter. It means, we don’t need to turn on all the heaters inside the house and can save heating bills. There is not too much work in cleaning our pathway. It is also safer to drive anywhere when there is no snow.

Lastly, I would say I am loving the winter that we have in Bavaria at the moment.  I  don#t wish for snow anymore but if it will still come, who am I to stop it.   The most important thing is, whatever  season and weather  it is, we should be thankful and be happy for we are still here on earth to see and experience the beauty of nature.

Take care everyone! Goodnight from Bavaria!
