The piggy was given to him by his daughter lisa. Harald schulze has affixed the lucky symbol to the cab of his space vehicle. So he always has it in sight. "Guten rutsch" (happy new year) stands on the piglet sitting on a sled. Harald schulze grins. He female: the emphasis is on "good", not a "slide.
The 50-year-old from kitzingen has been on winter service standby since wednesday. Together with his colleagues from the kitzingen building yard, he has been more or less in constant use ever since. Above all, the icy rain at the weekend left him hardly any sleep at all. Harald schulze takes it. "That’s the way it is in our profession." His sunday was a hard day’s work: from 3.30 a.M. To 7 a.M. Schulze cleared the snow, then lay down at home for a short while before he had to leave from 9 a.M. To 7 p.M.30 to 12 o’clock for the first icy rain mission. From 16.30 to 22 o’clock it went on.
"It doesn’t matter anyway"
five hours later, he is once again "sitting on the rack. Like every night, he shifts gears between 2.30 a.M. And 3 a.M. Out of his warm bed and swings into the cold cab of his all-wheel-drive vehicle, which the glowing gladbach fan has decorated with pennants from his club "a gift from my son kevin".
Between 3 and 3.At 30 o’clock, he sets off on his rattling machine for a tour of the town and arranges for the necessary clearing and gritting. Around noon, it’s still snowing in kitzingen, but the town is still "clean" for the time being; schulze is looking forward to getting a few hours of sleep. But the radio blares once again.
Harald schulze is not a bit scared. He knows the piercing roar that loosely drowns out the music in the fuhrerhaus. This time it’s the turn of the head of the building yard, georg gunther. He tells his experienced employee that a resident of the muhlberg area has called and asked him to push the snow to the other side of the road after all. Schulze stays cool. "What the heck, we’ll just go again. Now it doesn’t matter anyway."
