Whitest February so far …

Looking at the snow which has not even had the opportunity to disappear completely before fresh snow starts falling again … there is no denying that we are still in the middle of winter!

Yesterday was another one of those days with snow falling almost non-stop.  And today, although the snowfall did not fall as thick and furious as it did yesterday, it was still snowing until the middle of afternoon.

The bare branches of the trees are fully laden with snow as a result of the continuous snowfall yesterday … a very pretty sight to wake up to in the morning.

And as I had mentioned in an earlier entry, this winter season reminds the hubby so much of the time when he was younger when winter usually meant a white season for at least a couple of days. He was quite excited to see that there was so much snow in Geneva yesterday that he sent me several text messages about it! :)

Of course, the only problem with having so much snow everywhere is the possibility that traffic might stall as a result of it. Thankfully, despite the heavy snowfall yesterday, there was no overly long train delays or disruptions … and so the hubby was not delayed in coming home.

This winter certainly has been the snowiest so far … unbelievably so, for me.  And it certainly has been a great winter so far for the hubby to do his run on snow.

Thankfully, it has not been as windy as I remember it to have been the case in previous winters … which is nice. But without the strong wind … it is highly unlikely that we shall get to see the beautiful icy phenomena that we were able to admire last February. But as winter is not yet over … only time will tell lah! :)

This is how much snow there was on our balcony this morning …

The level outside our kitchen door – about 24cm high …

… and the level outside the living room – about 29cm high!

If I am brave enough to spend hours on the balcony, today will be the perfect day to build myself a snowman before the snow turns too hard to shape it easily!

But … I think that I will not lah … so that I do not fall prey to any relapse and that I thus remain fit to go for another carnival this coming weekend! hehehe … ;)
