Snow wins

Originally I had planed to take measurements of joints and faults in a number of quarries in the southern part of my mapping area. However, the weather god is against me. It started snowing heavily this morning and half-way to the first quarry I decided to turn around and go back. Road conditions are bad, snow and ice covering the access roads and some quarries are completely inaccessible by now. Great! If you ever plan to be mapping in Germany in winter - don't! Unfortunately I didn't have a choice.

Above you can see the view I currently have from my room. It is still snowing big flakes. I really should move to the Caribbean. Stupid winter snow!
