Remember those old Avalon Hill boardgames that required you to roll a die to get the weather for that turn? "The Russian Campaign" was one of my favourites that required you to roll the die on certain turns to see if you would get light mud, mud or snow. As the German, advancing in the '41 blitzkrieg, you were hoping for clear weather in Sep/Oct turn, in order to keep the panzers rolling toward Moscow [of course Moscow! You are in charge as the gamer, not the Fuhrer, so you are going for Moscow, not Kiev!] As the Russian defender, you were praying for the rasputitza to halt the fascist aggressor!

There's a company in Toronto [my birthplace] that has revised the game and now also markets a computer aide module for the game. If you are interested:

One cold, wintry day a few years ago I was sitting in the driver's room at work when another driver comes indoors. He's a German fellow, from Bavaria, old enough to remember the war as a kid. He says, "Ach, scheisse, it's cold today!" I said to him, "You Germans haven't liked winter since you lost at Stalingrad." He kind of cussed but then laughed.

One of our drivers, retired a few years back, was the only brother of six to survive. He lost one brother in a U-boat, another at Stalingrad and the others except one in other places. The last brother died right after the war in an industrial explosion. He is the last surviving male and had no sons, so his family name will pass away.

My girlfriend was in Berlin and Dusseldorf on business a few weeks ago. She saw people ice-skating down the River Spee to go to work! A taxi driver told her that it is the coldest winter in Germany for many years. Is that right?

The coldest winter since 64 years with down to -25 degrees for a week http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

But its not that cold anymore. I believe it is 10 degrees at the moment.

Starting to sound like a Wisconsin winter. Some time in mid November the sun disappears the temp begins to drop until it hits about 10 to 15 bellow (Fahrenheit not Celsius) and stays there until the beginning of March when the sun shows up again. Except for the one arbitrary week in January (same week as my birthday) when it gets so cold out that if you were to piss out of your second story it would freeze before it hit the ground. I think I can speak for most of the northern hemisphere when I say I am glade spring is coming.
