Hi Frank and hi all others. Cologne is sunny and relatively warm.
(Snow in Cologne is always ugly. Climate developement looks like we'd rather have white sping instead of White Christmas.)

The streets are overcrowded and the people are NOT really friendly.
(predestrians swearing at car owners and back.)

I'm working as usual. I prefer holidays in summer.

It's unseasonably warm in Paris, and rainy too. I don't think it rains right now. I work underground, but I can usually tell by the leaks
