Snow....

Not exactly enjoying the weather here in Leeds...

It is getting colder... sub zero temperature!

And it's foggy... and it's going to be bitterly cold this weekend! And it might snow on Friday!

I hate snow.. because after that it will turn into ice and the roads will be slippery..and dirty too! Today i almost slipped... very hard to walk on ice... esp if you are not wearing ice skates!!! HELP!!

I wondered how i survived winter in the Japanese Alps 5 years ago...
I remembered it was snowing on Christmas day 2000... and i was working in the office..(the Japanese do not have any holidays on Christmas day!) and i asked my supervisor if i could go out and play in the snow for a while... he laughed at me and told me not to be silly! hehe.

Anyway, on the way home from work that day.. it started to snow again and i was dancing in the street with my other Singaporean Colleague. It was our first White Christmas! My Japanese colleague was laughing at me.. telling me i would soon be cursing at the snow...

She was right.. of course...

It didn't stopped snowing for 2 days and i hated it.. because what normally took me 10min from the train station to the office took 30min for me! It was just too difficult to walk on the ice! Not looking forward to going to the Uni on a cold icy day! Maybe I need a pair of ice skates!? hmmm

weetz! wouldn't it be fun, skating on real snow! Perhaps if you'regood, your 30mins could then be reduced to 5!

Yeah you should learn ice skating. I have never seen real snow before! Wonder why I will experience my first White Christmas...

eeks... i hate uk snow... it's wet and mushy... not the powdery delight you get else where....

or maybe it's just the northeast... dang it!
