WEEKEND REVIEW January 16

For the first time this year it has snowed !



When I opened the shutters, the world was white ! This view is rather romantic, but in town it's a dirty mess ! The salt they had spread had melted the snow and the borders of the streets had a hill of dirty snow, not to speak about the sidewalks !

As usual the whole traffic broke down, highways hadn't been cleaned in time (although snow was announced) and it took people until 4 h for 20 km to Brussels.



I wanted to buy a new headphone and as the store was close to the Lion I took a picture of the mount in the snow. It even looks more sad ! There was not a single person, because the restaurants and caf├ęs are not there anymore.



We had our theatre piece organized by the Waterloo city for seniors and it was absolutely hilarious. We really had a lot of fun. When we came out it started to snow again and instead of having a drink in our Pub "La Pomme" we returned home because it became too slippery.

The snow is beautiful! Here, they put stuff on the road before it snows. It melts the snow/ice. Of course, they have to time it just right.

I enjoyed seeing the covering of snow yesterday but it didn't last and soon melted.

The snow makes everything look so pretty - until it gets dirty.

I like looking at snow ( in pictures;)). Were you in that play or in the audience?

It must be nice to open the shutters and see it all white. Sad about the chaos on the roads.
