The mild winters here in the Rhine Valley

“It’s warmer here in the Rhine valley,” they said.  “We get a lot of sunshine and not a lot of snow,” they said.

“Oh sure it snows,” they said. “But it really doesn’t accumulate much.” they said.

“Winter driving? Oh, hardly ever a problem here in Neustadt.” they said.

“Just a light dusting every now and again.  Nothing like  the big heavy snow you get in Iowa,” they said.

Well, they lied.
