Meanwhile in Germany, a security van had an accident and 40 thousand euro in coins were spread on the autobahn's tarmac.

Question: did policemen really have to pick the coins one by one? Couldn't they use a magnet?

10 and 20 cent coins aren't ferromagnets. 1, 2 and 5 cents stick like hell, while 1 and 2 euros only a bit.

That's all I can check on the spot

Incredible. With this financial crisis I could imagine all the money spread over the road .

BTW, we will have a hit together?

I suppose this will be one of the warmest Christmases in the Netherlands. We haven't had any winter yet so far. It's sunny and 7 degrees currently. This was quite different a year ago when there was a ton of snow.

Our last two winters have been really nasty. A few days before Christmas 2009, Philadelphia got its largest snowfall on record. (A record that was broken two months later.) Last year, I was at my parents' in New Jersey for a storm on December 26 that dropped three feet (about 90 cm) of snow.

So I'm perfectly happy to see this winter to go on as it has been. Except for a freak storm Halloween weekend, we've had nothing; highs have been running anywhere between 4 and 16 celsius.

Merry Christmas (or Happy Hanukkah or happy whatever you're celebrating even if it's just a weekend) to all!

Oh, don't worry. I'm up in Durban to spend Christmas with the family, and there's really only two types of weather here: hot, and hell. And this past week, it's definitely been hell.
