Brrrrrrr Sejukkk !!!


Brrrrr. . .  really, it must be the coldest February ever!!! -9 celcius at the moment with a promise of flurries again. Hopefully the flurries will turn out to be real snow again :D  Last week on Friday, the supposed flurries turned out to be heavy snow I was informed. I was not aware of the heavy snow, I was actually so engrossed in writing my last entry of "Aku Nikahkan DiKau", I didn't know it was snowing!!! By the time I realised it, only light snow still falling. Oh!! I love watching snow fall, the pure white snow crystal somehow gives me warm feeling.

By Saturday night, temperature had gone down to -15 celcius, so glad we were inside, blissfully warm in the comfort of our quilt. And so glad that it was Saturday night and there's no school tomorrow and there's no need to brace the cold, hoorayy !!!

When morning came, the view outside the house was transformed. . . it was so beautifully white, it was magical.


Around our house - on the way to school

By the time I managed to coax DS to come out, it was 11.30 a.m. Luckily the snow still sticked to the trees, a few hours later it would have been blown to the ground by the wind. There were not much snow, only about 10 cm but it was so dry and fine snow. Because of the extreme slightly colder weather (by Holland's standard), snow on the ground still exist and still crisp until today.

Isn't the snow view awsome?? I will try to upload more photos later.

I like it cold. How I miss the winter scenes. Will you be long over there?

R.A.S said...

I love snow and I love winter!!!! Sadly, winter in the UAE offers no snow.

Azrey Rozie Eiman said...

Seronoknya snow. Tp myself tak thn Seljuk. Kat Qatar in baru 8 dah Sejuk menggigil. Hopefully one day leh gi tempat yg ada snow, nk rasa sejuk snow :)

i amsterdam said...

Al-Manar,

I like it cold only when it's snowing, otherwise... no :)

And this is our last year.

i amsterdam said...

RAS,

How cold is the winter there?

i amsterdam said...

Azrey Rozie Eiman,

Sebelum salji, memang terasa sejuknya, bila salji dah turun.. sejuk tu dah kurang... Tapi bergantung pada suhu juga, tahun ni memang sejuk betul, suhu menjunam hingga -18 di kawasan kami, kalau utara Holland lagilah sejuk.

R.A.S said...

Hi there..Winter here is peanuts compared to your place. The coldest it went was 5 degrees but what makes it horrible is the wind. So, you memang akan rasa nak jadi macam air batu..still amsterdam lagi sejuk and beautiful with the leafless trees and iced branches!

i amsterdam said...

RAS,

5 degrees and windy... that's even worse!! I prefer it to be -5 degrees and snowing :)
