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.
