Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

If A&E has not got enough "on its plate"

Spare a thought for the poor soul who prompted a response from the bomb squad after getting an artillery shell stuck up his bottom.
The anonymous patient, who reportedly collected military memorabilia, “slipped and fell” on a projectile from World War Two.
The girthy shell, which measured an impressive 17cm by 6cm, would have been fired from anti-tank guns during the war.
Fearing the round could detonate, the bomb squad was called to the A&E department of the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital on Wednesday morning.
A Gloucestershire Constabulary spokesperson told Indy100 that they responded to a report that “a patient had presented with a munition in his rectum” at the Gloucestershire hospital.
The police spokesperson added: “The item had been removed prior to police arrival and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team (EOD) were contacted.
“They attended and confirmed it was not live and therefore not a danger to the public.”
In a statement to Indy100, an Army spokesperson said: “We can confirm an Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal team was called out to Gloucestershire at the request of local police.”
A source told the newspaper that the patient found the shell as he was doing a clear out.
They said: "He said he put it on the floor then he slipped and fell on it — and it went up his a***.
“He was in a considerable amount of pain. I think he collected military memorabilia.”
The patient has since been discharged from the hospital and will make a full recovery.

Guess he must now be feeling a bit shell-shocked.

I visited my local district hospital for an out patients appointment today and was unable to find a car parking place what is very unusual, the hospital was rammed with people, it was like War Zone. God only knows what A&E must have been like, numerous people wandering around with bandaged limps, wheel chairs been rationed out to the very infirm and elderly.

Breaking news in the press, they are saying the new Chancellor says lockdown for vaccinated ends.
Quote:

At his first press conference as head of government, the newly sworn Chancellor Karl Nehammer (ÖVP) came up with a long-awaited message on Tuesday: He promised a fixed end to the lockdown on December 12th for those who had been vaccinated, which should also include restaurants and hotels. Security is crucial in the opening steps, so controls and sanctions are crucial. The restrictions on those who have been vaccinated remain in place.
It is no longer a question of whether the lockdown will be ended, but simply how it is done. There is currently a good tendency in the Corona situation, which should become a "trend". When asked, he emphasized that the opening steps for vaccinated people should also include the catering and hotel industry - under which conditions will now be clarified at the federal-state summit on Wednesday.

Tirol, Voralberg and Burgenland come out of lockdown on Sunday, the rest of the ski areas follow suit on 17th, Kärntnen is yet to decide.
Hotels and restaurants will open on the above days, Aprés ski bars remain shut. I don't know what the definition of an Aprés bar is in this context.

I took this pic. They are day trippers queuing for a ticket, with masks on. The car park was full of DE and distant AT plates. There were no queues for lifts, and the open slopes were not crowded at all. It was a fine weather day. The next day - empty! Ange.

"The Austrian tourist board has said that overseas visitors can return from December 12, when its nationwide lockdown ends.

The reopening will be staggered, however, with three regions – Burgenland and the key ski areas of Tirol and Vorarlberg – opening their hotels and restaurants from December 12, three – Salzburg, Styria and Lower Austria – from December 17, and Vienna from December 20. The reopening of venues in Upper Austria, where the lockdown will end on December 17, as not yet been confirmed.

Only "vaccinated and recovered" tourists will be permitted to enter the country, or able to visit indoor venues. "

@cooperman17, Après bars are not open. Anyone with any sense will make sure they are meeting the definition of “bar” rather than “après bar” (whatever that is, probably just turning the music down) and carry on. Huts serve beer too.
