Eisbahn / ice skating rink

(English version follows below)

Normalerweise ist die Hälfte des Spielplatzes hinter unserem Haus überschwemmt. Also so richtig überschwemmt. So, dass man extrem mit dem Kleinen aufpassen muss, weil ihm das Wasser an einigen Stellen bis zum Bauch gehen würde. Natürlich haben diese Pfützen eine gewisse Anziehungskraft. Und deswegen muss ich oft nach zehn Minuten mit pitschnassen Kindern wieder nach Hause.

Wenn es allerdings mal richtig kalt wird, dann hat man statt großen Pfützen eine richtig tolle Eisbahn hinterm Haus. Und muss noch nicht mal lange warten, bis das Eis fest genug ist um einen zu tragen. Schade nur, dass es nur einen einzigen Tag lang so richtig kalt war…Inzwischen sind wir wieder bei +2°C angekommen und den entsprechend großen Pfützen.

 Normally, more than half of the playground next to our house is flooded. Really, really flooeded. So flooded that one needs to be extra careful with the hobbit because at some parts, the water would be too deep. Of course these mega-puddles are very attractive to children. And that’s why I normally have to go back inside again after ten minutes on the playground, accompanied by to very wet children.

But when the temperatures drop below zero, these puddles turn into a really awesome ice skating rink. And one doesn’t even need to wait very long for the ice to be thick enough. It’s just a pity that the short stretch of cold weather was over again after just one day. Now we are back to +2°C and puddles.

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
