A storm warning for the entire country has been issued here in Germany, even an extreme storm warning for some parts.
“Der Deutsche Wetterdienst (DWD) gibt wegen des verheerenden Sturms für die Mittelgebirge, Teile der Bundesländer Baden-Württemberg, Bayern, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Hessen, Thüringen, Sachsen, Sachsen-Anhalt, Rheinland-Pfalz und das Saarland eine extreme Unwetterwarnung heraus. Für die anderen Regionen galt eine Unwetterwarnung.” (Quelle: Spiegel online)
It has been very windy here since last night, but not too bad. Even though the storm had not started in earnest yet, we ended classes early today like many other schools so the kids were able to go home safely. When I came home from school later in ther afternoon (there’s a lot of extra work at school at the moment because of the imminent report cards), two neighbouring towns had power outages and almost noone was out on the roads. As you can see, we still have electricity, but the light already flickered a few times…
But I’m not really worried that anything really serious could happen. There are no big old trees that could fall onto our house, so we should be quite safe here.
