A winter wonderland in Vienna

LKL_3676

Vienna became a winter wonderland two nights ago. I woke up yesterday to the sound of scraping and thought, why is someone scraping the sidewalk at this ungodly hour? When I finally stumbled out of bed a little while later I was shocked to see so much snow. I don’t know what the official count is, but it looks like about 15 inches of snow. What is really impressive is that the city seems to still be running mostly as per usual. I took the U-Bahn yesterday and there were no significant delays, people were out and about, shops were open. The last time I saw this much snow was in NYC two days before Louis was born, and the city was totally paralyzed for more than a week! At any rate, I managed to take a little break yesterday afternoon and slip out to the Stadtpark to take some photos.
