Good luck and have a safe trip!
PS:
Those hills south of Passau are quite steep, but the snow service should be ok and afaik the roadworks are essentially finished there.
I dream of a run past Passau without roadworks!! I can get just past Nuremburg without filling up. I've done the same route 6 or 7 times now. Which is quite frightening.......

No, weeks later, I fell off the side of a fast moving boat onto an incompressible surface, the sea which hasn’t affected my pride, but my backs quite sore.

I was thinking more of the weather events that tend to affect the Caribbean later each year.

Not really, 12 degrees is officially south of that belt which is important for insurance. We do see some passing north of us every year but only once a decade about does one touch us..

Jetsam, be careful - you must know those crazy German drivers now!

Keep your distance!

At least most Germans know how to drive in the snow - which is more than most Brits can do !

Keep safe.

The next problem will be flooding, now the thaw is on in earnest. My courtyard in Croatia is already under a couple of inches of water and there is still loads of snow left on the roofs. I also just discovered that both my wellies let in water. The logs I should have been using had so much snow on them that I started using the logs meant for next winter, which were in the barn. The vertical planks that form the side of the barn have gaps for ventilation. You would think that was ideal for seasoning the logs but it means the snow can blow in. The logs got covered in snow, which I was brushing off each day from the ones I was cutting up and splitting. Now that snow has melted and the logs are soaking wet.
