I have been looking so forward to spring, but it has left us, it seems. It has been raining for over a week and even before that, the merry month of May wasn’t the best, in regard to weather.
It got even better yesterday when we had temperatures of 41F, it rained, hailed, sleeted and the snowfall height dropped to just around 700 meters (I live at about 650).
On the other hand, I should consider it positive as had the weather been wonderful, I would have hated it for not being able to get away on my motorcycle. My schedule at the moment is a brutal one, and I am looking forward to getting some undisturbed time off at some point in summer. In fact, I desperately need a break, I really do.
We had a holiday on Thursday and in the morning, the rain paused, allowing me to take a long and lazy jaunt down by the river with Tobi. In the afternoon I caught up on sleep and then tried to get the house into some sort of order resembling civilised living.
Here a few pictures:
An Update on the Bear
He has fled back into Austria (thank goodness) where he may also be shot on sight.
They found some fur of his and did a DNA analysis. His name is JayJay1. It turns out that he comes from an Italien group of bears which is part of a re-populating process in Trentino. Apparently, his mother was also a very aggressive bear and taught him all of the wrong things (meaning, the bear can’t help it – it’s how he was raised). Animal groups are trying and hoping to catch him alive, and get him settled in a wildlife park north of Munich. Let’s hope they succeed!
