Cold winter

The oaks here in town are carrying great amounts of acorn. According to people who have lived here longer, this is a sign that the winter will be cold and harsch. An interesting change from last winter which was too warm for the season and where we almost had no snow a all.

Tonight was the first time of the season temperatures dropped below freezing in Bremen.
