Surprise of a Day

This is what I saw when I got up this morning.

This Year's First Snow

I was really surprised. Somebody told me that snow might fall on Monday, but I didn't take that seriously. I was in Kragujevac for a couple of days, and this morning I had to go to my parent's house. I got up, and thought that it was raining heavily, but no, it was snowing! I screamed and woke up my love who was pretty much in a deep sleep. I LOOOVE snow. This is officially the beginning of the Christmas season for me. I really don't like when New Year and Christmas come and go without a drop of snow. And it happened a couple of  times in previous years. You see in the picture that it really wasn't much of a snow, and it melted fast on the concrete. However, when I got into a bus and rode out of the city, everything was covered in a thin white coat. It was so lovely! :-)

If you want to know how heavily it can snow here, this is a photo which pretty much speaks for itself.

The Last Year's Snow in My Front Yard

And this picture was taken twelve days after it fell. On the first day it was about two feet, seven inches tall (about 80 cm). My family and I were shoveling like crazy. We were also fooling around in snow ( we made snow angels, threw ourselves into snow, well, mostly my love and I, my parents thought we got crazy ) It was great, but I got sick afterwards. I hope for a great snow this year, too. I just love when everything is covered in white, when everything looks so clean and fresh. It's like you are rolled into a giant marshmallow.


  1. Hi Katarina,
    That is a great picture of snow. I have been wanting a little snow for Christmas. Very pretty! Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.

  2. We have only had a dusting of snow so far...I love your description-'rolled into a giant marshmallow'! :)

  3. I live in the south, so if we get snow it is usually later rather than early in Winter. I do love it when it snows though because it's such a treat for us. Enjoy your newly fallen snow. It sure is pretty!

  4. Snow!!! We rarely have snow here in Tennessee until January or February. I would LOVE a white Christmas! Life to the full, Melissa
