What a surprise when I openend the curtains ! It had snowed !!
The last time we really had snow in Belgium far more then today was in 2012 ! Ever since a few snowflakes dropped from heaven from year to year and disappeared the next day !
Of course in a country not used to snow or maybe a little bit in the Ardennes, which is a small part, it is the chaos when only three flakes drop ! Not organized at all, although the weatherman had announced snow for 10 days, they hadn't prepared the trucks which salted the street. Probably nobody believed in snow anymore. The main street in front of our building, a so called Boulevard was full of snow and the cars drove like snails.
The view from our living room was beautiful ! Sitting in my sofa and looking outside I nearly thought I would be in wintersport, without the sport fortunately !
From the side the "Boulevard" to the city center at 10 am !
Love the white roofs
Our garden furniture wrapped for the winter, my little cat statues wear all a white bonnet !!
My neighbor in the next house cleans his entrance in shorts and slippers ! But .... he wears a scarf !
Madame gives instructions from the kitchen window !
I had to drive Mr. G to his Whist group and even the street where the St. John's school of Brussels is located was not cleaned ! Hope that no child has broken his leg !
There are many offices in the Waterloo office park on the right, it was very slippery !
I was happy when I arrived home safe and sound and of course I preferred to see the landscape through the window and the people walking with their dogs in the park.
