So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Schnaps ideas or Schnops ideen!

These are all over the Lungau and Ramingstein has several. I guess some people in the pub got an idea, found funds from somewhere, and they had a big opening with beer and sausages with microphone snatching from mayor to mayor. A good time was had by all, and then they all promptly forgot all about it!

The Culture Park- right beside the cement factory has several concrete sculptures (surprise, surprise) where the notices have worn off and now you can only see them when the local farmer has cut around them for hay. What did people expect, that visitors make a special trip to see them???????

These sign posts are all around us, most of which are now falling to pieces and making some funny words- no-one taking responsibility to repair them.

This one is a real Ramingstein Crow advertising the now defunct Cross country skiing path, I guess now he’s showing the Nordic walking trail.

And the best. The local railway company, suddenly decided to knock down the old railway station, and made an ugly new car park. So for ages we wondered why there was a set of standard gauge tracks by it- the local line being narrow.

Then suddenly this carriage appeared. It’s stayed here and been painted green. The windows have been smashed and repaired, but no one seems to be using it. Apparently the Mayor thought it could be used for holiday accommodation for workers – I wonder just how much  had he drunk that night?

  1. That carriage placement doesn’t do justice to the gorgeous natural landscape. I hope that more people make noise about it so it’s eventually moved somewhere else appropriate.
