Sorry Berlin, Saturday is my fault.

Despite being in that post-cold stage where I feel slightly out of it at times, I’ve noticed that this past week the weather has been absolutely, positively, wonderful.

There is no doubt about it, people are out and about, and wearing less—it’s not quite shorts weather, but people are venturing out wearing t-shirts and lightweight jackets. Today, after my German class was cancelled due to the teacher being ill, I went out at lunch for a walk around the office neighborhood – and it was spectacular.

One of the things I really like about my office is that every day that I’m on the street, I’m reminded that I am lucky enough to live and work in a tourist destination—and as I strolled around, looking at the cathedrals near my office, I dodged walking tours of Berlin – all filled with tourists snapping pictures and looking slightly lost.

Which brings me back to why I’m apologizing in advance for Saturday.

It seems that this weekend temperatures will drop and snow will fall.

I suspect this is my fault since, as I noted yesterday, I washed my winter coat in the hopes that I would be able to put it away for the summer.

Instead I’ll be wearing it Saturday.

    I know how you feel. I pulled my flip-flops down from the attic yesterday, and today there was a little snow in the air. Of course, I knew the cold weather was already headed my way before I brought down the flip-flops, but I still feel partly responsible! 🙂
