Freezing cold – and that’s not just the weather

Overnight, temperatures in this part of the world dropped to below -15 C. Temperatures haven’t been this low in Winter for a few years and of course everyone has started complaining already. Including me. It’s not funny when it takes 30 minutes to defrost the windscreen before being able to drive off.

Anyway, the drop in temperature seems to match the current economic climate (a coincidence? – I think not) where so-called “experts” are predicting everything from a quick recovery to many years of economic Winter. Over the weekend I saw that predictions for the German share index – the Dax – were ranging from 3000 to 8000 index points for the end of 2009. That tells you something.

So what will 2009 bring? Nobody knows. And therein lies the motivation to dig out of the snow and get moving.

I like to think that restarting the blog where I can dump ideas, thoughts and rants is my way of digging out of the snow and moving forward.
