Holy moley Yg, what breathtaking pictures! And I've never really seen the Hof in all it's splendor! I now understand why you're building it!

Hi aserendipity! you'd be more than welcome to come up and visit, of course! We try to have a party or two, and hopefully more, each year there, and I announce it here. Or if in the area, just pop in!

Hey TTG.......when you see this anyway.

well, what fun will be had today?
I'll be calling the ancestors later.

Hey yg, looks like you beat me to it.
Nice hof pictures, thanks.
It still throws me off a bit to hear how soon, relatively speaking, winter shuts things down up there in the mountains. Just not used to that schedule here.

Good seeing you aserendipity

Meanwhile, hopefully our east coast friends continue to check in..

Hey BVB......yeah, the shutdown up there is a combination, of 16 miles of rural road, good road but unplowed, all above 5K ft el. and the highest point going in is about 6400', for about a mile.... so once the snow is too deep for my vehicles (and I don't have a snow machine), I'm out. Some others in monster trucks and jeeps and such can get in a little longer.
Did you get any effects from the storm?

aseredipity: you're welcome to come watch, no work necessary when folks show.....that is relax time. food is great, but really, if you just show up with a smile you're welcome.
Are you in the area?

Just unplugged the ac here.
Still working in a tshirt outside last night.
That elevation thing matters though.
It's about 240 ft here.

Beautiful view there.

The storm didn't really reach this far inland to speak of, mostly all east and northeast of here. Sounds pretty tough in a lot of areas.

Morning aserendipity, BVB, Gyre, UD and YG. Great pics of the Hof! Looks so beautiful up there. What a load of work you've done, YG. Looks quite livable and maybe the bears will agree????? Hope not.

SF will be a zoo today with the Giants big victory parade. Going to avoid that for sure. Watch it on TV.

Guess the worst of the storm is now over and the clean up and reconstruction has to begin. Spoke to my grandson in Queens NY yesterday morning and he is doing ok. I can really understand how the tunnels and subways could get flooded. So much of Manhattan is really hollowed out with the subway system and so a natural for flooding. Guess now folks might take the melting Artic ice and it effect on rising sea levels a bit more seriously. Hope MDF and our other east coast friends have electricity and are doing ok. My thoughts are with them.

Lilo was my grandmother's name. Short for Liselotte! Though growing up, I only ever knew her as "Omi". To the point where I assumed it was her name, until I was told differently in Jr. High.

"Your granddaughter is a fish" should do quite nicely.

(A fish who may have overstepped herself. Sorry if this was too disrespectful, Ygmir.)

Goodness, our Grandmothers had the same name, Nipple!

Fishy: I'd say it's pretty hard to use "too disrespectful" and "Ygmir" in the same sentence.
one thing, about us Norse Pagans...we love to laugh!! and not much is off the table, if it's amusing.

wow, maybe you and Nippple are related, considering all you grandmothers had in common?

Hm. Maybe. But as my grandmother didn't have any known grandsons, it would be kinda amazing to find this out.

Elizabeth Charlotte! I had never heard that before!

She met my grandfather while fleeing Europe with her family due to some political strife in the early 40's.

That's really neat!

(She lived in Germany as a yute. That area of Germany though is now modern day Poland, and the city was razed during the war. I'd have to check the name when I get home. Only recently did I learn that my Große Opa fought in both WWI and WWII (Almost not old enough for WWI, and almost too old for WWII, best luck ever on his part.) He was drafted and turns out he was captured as a prisoner of war early on by the Soviets, and sent East. At the end of the war they just opened the door on the labor camps and sent him on his way. Apparently it took him forever to find the family. They had fled Germany, Lilo married a US Serviceman (my grandfather, whom I only met a couple times) and her and her brothers were about to move to Ohio with my Great Aunt Gisela. Later my grandmother remarried the man I'd know as my grandfather... (trading this time, for an Army Officer and ex-WWII POW) and moved Große Opa Fritz in with them making for what would eventually sound like a terrible sitcom... The story could be completely false as related to me, but... that's how I heard it and I'm sticking with it.)

A "yute"? You mean Jude or Jutlander? (Or maybe "youth"...)

I recently uncovered a long-lost cousin in Germany as well. Seems that one part of the family comes from where they make the Porsches and the other from where they used to make Trabants.

My father's family left Germany in the late 30s. My grandfather's family was Jewish. He left first, leaving my grandmother, my father, and his two sibs, my great-grandmother and some sort of cousin, plus various pets, behind, as there were currency restrictions at the time. He took work as an expert witness to make money before he sent for them. When it came time for the rest of the family to come over, the SS colonel wouldn't grant the exit visas. Lilo went to his office, dressed in her best, and pulled some sort of "if I act as if everything is normal and in order he'll grant them" and what do you know, she was right. The SS still hung out and watched as they packed...
My grandmother grew up in a town called Goslar, which was in East Germany. Now it's only in eastern Germany. I don't know how well it faired (fared?) in the war.
You were lucking your great-grandfather made it back. There were German prisoners in the Soviet Union until some time in the fifties. A good chunk of the Sixth Army (who had surrendered at Stalingrad) did labor--including building. If at all possible, you wanted to live in an apartment building they had built--less chance of it falling down.
