"Klimatisch ist der Odendorf-Rheinbacher Raum vor Zülpich und Euskirchen als das regenärmste Gebiet des Rheinlandes ausgewiesen. "
Or in English, this is a dry region with much less rainfall than in the Rhein valley.
about 700mm/year vs 1200mm/year in Bonn, Germany
Toronto, Ontario, Canada: Annual average precipitation is 831 mm
The rainfall in Barrie is significant, with precipitation even during the driest month. This climate is considered to be Dfb according to the Köppen-Geiger climate classification. The temperature here averages 7.2 °C | 44.9 °F. The rainfall here is around 940 mm
So there is nothing unusual about being here or there, in any year.
Odendorf is some dozen kilometers from Heimerzheim on the tributary, the Ohrbach, of the Swist, and some 40m higher in elevation.

Now let us look further left , beyond the bridge for the high water mark:
On Gründonnerstag, 1997, I walked along here to photograph the Comet Hale-Bopp_
The Ohrbach is just a meter or so in front of me.
The Zehnthaus -
These photos were shot on film and then digitized.
But it is the places that are missing, the people who cannot answer my queries ...
so much more to consider,
but I won't. dear friends,
