Snow, Snow, Snow!!!

Last Sunday, when we woke up we were really surprised that everything was covered with snow!!!
It's quite rare for us to have lots of snow around here, so it was a big surprise to us!

Even if it snowed, it is usually powdery snow, roads were covered with a thin layer of snow, so it becomes slushy and dirty, so I didn't like snow much.
But this time was totally different, there were more than 10 cm snow, and was still snowing!
Actually I have never seen such a snowy scene ever since, so I was quite excited like a child.
I have never been to skiing or snowboarding in my life, even though my husband is a snowboarder (he was a snowboard instructor in Colorado, US, when he was young)...

These photos were taken in our garden.

But on such a snowy day, I had to go to see a doctor, so I caught a bus then went to a hospital...
I was almost slipping many times (lol, it was so scary!!), so as I was carefully walking, it took so much time to go back home...
I thought it won't melt soon and I won't be able to drive up to the city for shopping for a few days or more, I bought lots of groceries on that day.
My guess was right, there are still lots of snow left, especially on our backyard.
It quitted once, but now it's snowing again...
I think tomorrow morning we will see everything is covered with snow again!
Uhhmmm, happy or unhappy???
My son will ask me to make a big snowman again, brrrr I hate cold weather!!

By the way, I've got sweet gift from Angela in the UK more than a week ago, but I was ill past one week, so haven't been able to post it yet...
Sorry Angela, I will update what I've received from you in the next post! :D

I hope that you are feeling better :)

Very cool that you got some snow! We have had more than our fair share here lately. I don't mind it as long as I can be out doing something fun (like skiing!) in it or not have to go driving through it :)

Ooooh, Yuko those photos are just beautiful! I love seeing snow as I live in the desert where we can only see it in the mountains! I hope you are feeling better. Not fun to have to go to the doctor ~ especially in that kind of weather.

Angela said...

I hope everything went okay with the new doctor :>)
Thinking of you. hugs, Angela

It's so strange, near Paris we should have a cold weather at this period of the year, and this week we have a blue sky and a warm Sun; all plants believe that it is Spring already, and some flowers are coming out, they are crazy ! Be carefull not to slip and fall on the floor :-)

Jessie said...

Thanks Yuko for sharing these beautiful snow pictures! It reminds me of the feeling when i first saw snow in Switzerland. How i wish there's snow here :) It's humid here in Singapore.
Hope you are feeling better now. Take care ya.
