MY WORLD - White winter
more participants here
My world is white and cold ! I can't remember that we had so much snow since I was a young girl in 1963 ! But apparently we had a similar winter also in 1987, ever since, no snow or just a little. I even digged out a K-way wintersport jacket I had bought in the 80th ! It looked new, because once I had bought it the winters were never cold enough to wear it.
But now we are really spoiled !
It started snowing on Saturday afternoon, and this is our entrance
the next morning looking out of my window I saw the car sitting deeply in the snow
the street and roofs were white
This tree always looks very beautiful when it snows
A view over our garden
On Monday the snow had stopped and the sun shined over this white world and made it
our neigbor's house just in front
and our house in the sunshine
This was the view I had from our living room on Monday morning
icicles hanging from the roof
Magpies discussing in the tree
No snow blowers in our street, nobody is equipped for such a weather
but it looks beautiful when you don't have to go somewhere
there must have been someone who had missed the roundabout
and my little Christmas decoration is hidden in the snow.
Schools are closed, no mail, and we are asked to stay home if it is not really necessary to go out. Brussels airport is closed and thousands of people are stuck and have to spend the night in the airport.
Only the children are happy, they enjoy the school free day and have fun in the snow !
