After enjoying a 70 degree day here in Emporia, I received this picture from our very good friend, Yogi Reppmann, who winters in Northfield, MN and returns to his home city Flensburg in northern Germany during the summer months. Please pay attention to the thermometer in the background. That was probably the high that day. Our son, Chris, returned from a visit from Northfield a day ago and mentioned the high was 3 degrees.
Yogi and his wife Gitta, hosted my visit to Germany a few years ago and has arranged for several friends to visit us here in the U.S. One of Yogi’s other pictures showed him blowing snow with a snow blower that looks to be about eight inches-worth.
Frohe Weihnachten an meine deutschen Freunde
