We Survived the Great Freeze of 2009
This is our third winter here, but it's the first one that we've seen ice all the way across the Neckar! (Note everyone out for a Sunday walk! Everybody was taking photos of the ice, too!)
As a result, the water upstream from the ice was incredibly still. Beautiful!
Found this blog today; the writer says he is 49 years old and this is the first time he's seen the Neckar frozen. According to a guy quoted here, it hasn't frozen this much since 1963 - although then it was much more frozen.
The police would like to warn you that it's thin ice and neither you nor your dog should walk on it. ;)
Sadly, tomorrow the forecast shows temperatures going back above freezing during the daytime, and I guess they'll have to start getting boats back through here again soon.
