Snow (1963 & 2009)

After all my grypping in the last post, New Year's Eve last night was actually rather mellow, at least by Berlin standards. People only started tossing cherry bombs off their balconies at around 11:30 and then stopped about an hour later. Anyone outside at that time should and would have known what was coming. Why such a lack of Silvester aggression? Perhaps because of the snow. Inches and inches of it which is not very common in Berlin. Pretty....

Apropos snow, I found this really cool short film from 1963 of trains and snow in the British countryside. The soundtrack is also tres groovy. Happy New Year everybody!
