Added new Photo of the Month.
December 2003 had a pretty normal temperature, averaged over day and night about 4 degrees. It was a quite wet month and there were more hours of sunshine recorded than in an average December.

2003 as a whole was warm: 10,3°C, about 0,5 degrees above "normal". It has been an exceptionally sunny year, about 500 hours more sunshine than in an average year. Furthermore it was pretty dry.

Today, on New Year's Day, a disturbance brought snow to a large part of the country. Most of the white stuff fell in the southwest where up to 7 cm's of snow were reported. Also in Soest, my hometown, it started snowing during the afternoon hours.
