Let it snow...

It snowed in Heidelberg the day after Christmas. We hopped on the Strassenbahn to go to Mediamarkt (Germany's {poor} version of Best Buy) when we discovered that everything (almost) was closed. We decided to continue to the "end of the line" and have hot cocoa on the Hauptstrasse. It was nice to get out of the house! I, by the way, had a Hefeweizen.
When we got back home, the kids and B somehow scraped enough snow together to make a snow man. Within a couple of hours or so, a juvenile anarchist on a bike rode up and kicked the pudd'n out of him (while Robert watched in horror from the Wintergarten!). Poor Mr. Snowman. The kids were upset for about 3 minutes but, as Buddha said, all things are impermanent.
