Well we finally have some proper snow in Vienna. Sissi has been out on the terrace to (briefly) have a look at it and I have been over to Stadtpark to take some photos.
Stadtpark always looks good but particularly so after snow. It is not really cold though – so the pond has not frozen over.
There was a man feeding the pigeons – and if any ducks came near him he chased them away. Strange behavior indeed.
In the meantime Australia is baking in record high temperatures. As reported in the Sydney Morning Herald – Australia has started 2013 with the hottest days on record.
“And the country has set a new national average maximum of 40.33 degrees on Monday, beating the previous record - set on December 21, 1972 - by a "sizeable margin" of 0.16 degrees”
Suffering Succotash! That is hot.
