Baby, it's cold outside!
And it was.
This photo of the Dom in Erfurt (East Germany) was taken in December 1996, one of the coldest winter in Germany. Temperature's lows were at -25 C (-13 F). The Geek and I were dating at that time, and we had gone to Erfurt for me to meet his mom who was then living there. We both loved the light at the Dom and decided to venture outside despite the cold and take some photos.
We stayed there for about 20 minutes and took pictures - then our fingers were numb and the batteries in our cameras weak. Time to go home and warm up with some hot chocolate and rum.
The weather stayed like this for about two or three weeks until it "warmed up" a little bit. When we left Erfurt after a couple of days, the windshield of our car froze over repeatedly and we had to stop every 10 kilometers or so (6 miles) to clean it up. Such a drag!!! But we were young and very much in love - for us it was an adventure.
