Snow Day!

In Luxembourg, snow day, translated, means:

....building snow forts in the Chateau courtyard/parking lot...

...exploring the grounds, discovering unknown buildings, covered in vines (this time I stumbled upon the old stables)...

...and lots of sledding on old, antique sleds, found in a forgotten closet. 

Last night, a blizzard literally blew through this tiny country, paralyzing highways and canceling evening plans. I braved the snow and ice to visit the local Christmas market, drinking hot wine under the quiet snow fall.
Schools around the country were closed for the day, including our little campus, so we made the most of our impromptu day off. And in addition to our snow fort, a ten foot snow man is watching over our castle, ready to welcome the staff and faculty tomorrow morning. 

My crazy realization of the day? In one week I'll be home. Home sweet home.
