Walk on Holy Evening 24.12.2005

Fortunately we can save at least an hour after all christmas preparations to to do a little walk. "Christmas thaw" has brought us plus 8 degrees C, so snow only on higher mountains

A bit cloudy, but from west coming a sunny spell. Snow covered Hohe Wand is flashing  in the sunshine. ...

 ... whereas in the plain only rests of snow are found on shady and wind drifted areas.

Still clouds on deeply snow covered Schneeberg

View to Wechsel ...

 ... and Semmering. Changing clouds are the sign of a slight foehn weather situation
