Came up to Constance Saturday afternoon late on after seeing family at home, then shopping etc. Loaded the boat by dodging between the heavy rainshowers and settled down for an evening of amateur radio. Did a bit of reading too. There was a hire boat moored opposite and he had his engine running until well after I went to bed. I guess that, unlike me, he had no other form of heating. I was toasty warm.
What a surprise to wake up to on Sunday morning, no I do not mean just that the hire boat's engine was running again, SNOW! And quite a bit of it.
The snow continued to fall throughout the morning, then it rained for a while. By 4pm it was sunny again and the solar cell was doing its stuff. The hire boat's engine was still running...
