Today a look out the window revealed a rare sight. Sheets of ice were floating on the Mosel. Since the river's canalisation in the sixties this has been uncommon. Once in the eighties and again in the nineties we were able to witness a closed layer of ice which made crossing the Mosel by foot possible. This requires temperatures consistently below -10°C for at least ten straight days. But predictions for this week point into the opposite direction. Still we are looking forward to the possibility!
