Now my son lives in it," she said, staring into the darkness. Shortly thereafter, a large covered roof was visible in the glare of the spotlight. Curtains passed through the window frame. The son was not home yet, the woman said.
"Due to the pressure, the windows broke," said glass master Sascha Jansen – and that in at least 20 houses on the small street. The wind pushed the glass into the bedrooms. "I've never seen anything like it," he shook his head in disbelief. He was on site with a Glaser team. But the second team is on the way.
"My friend is looking for help," said Axel Cziesla, waiting in front of his house. The roof was covered and would have to be repaired quickly. "When it rains again, it's all over." Shortly after, he began to greet vigorously.

Time in Germany: When does spring start?
Basically, it differs between the meteorological start and the spring calendar.
- When does the weather spring start?
The meteorologist divides the year into four seasons Spring on March 1who Summer to 1.
Junewho Fall on September 1 it's the Winter on December 1,
- When does the spring calendar begin?
O early astronomical spring it will also calendrical called. This date is determined by the position of the earth in the sun: Spring begins when the sun is exactly at its zenith above the equator, becoming the same day and night for the first time in a year. It is a scientifically calculated date. In the northern hemisphere, this year, as in recent years, is March 20. Indeed, in 2011, the beginning of spring was dated March 21, and in 2048, it will be the first of March 19.
In addition, there is the phenological approach, which depends on the level of development of the plants and therefore is clearly vague to determine. For example, it is spoken of the beginning of the spring, when the first blizzards are visible. Due to global warming, however, the plants are beginning to bloom earlier, which is why the phenological spring begins to change over time.
