I had big dreams of camping this week (by camping I mean pitching a tent in front of our apartment and sleeping out), until I realized that I left our tents in long term storage somewhere in the states, and that Germany has weather.
Before the storms roll in, Wiesbaden
You see, I am from California, the part of the state that defines weather as “warm” and “slightly warmer”. The sun shines, the breeze blows, and we enjoyed an annual rainstorm. It was fantastic, as I prefer sunny and cloudless and warm.
Germany is a whole different story, compete with rain storms, thunder, lightning, and a whole lot of *weather*. We didn’t let it get us down, instead we built a tent out of blankets and furniture and camped IN instead of OUT. The kids watched some movies, read some books, and almost didn’t notice that I forgot to buy Smores.
