Timmelsjoch to Merano

Quite an adventure yesterday, taking "Tessie" up the Timmelsjoch pass at 2,474m to visit the Italian city of Merano. Turns out that the steep mountain road is no problem for an electric car, but on the way back an unexpected layer of 40cm of snow due to a local snow storm (hard winds blew a lot of snow off the mountains onto the road) did get us stuck completely. Thanks to the help of the Italian side "Winterdienst" (2 guys pushing the car and doing some extra snow shoveling right in front of us) we made it out fine eventually...
