The Miracle of Snow

2 Dec

A couple of weeks ago I promised myself I would do a walk through the first snow of the season. You know, I *may* have gotten inspired by the Gilmore Girls there but that doesn’t matter. As I was at a Christmas Party of my University’s International Office, it started to snow like crazy. I didn’t stay long because I was a bit afraid I wouldn’t make it down the hill of the Uni and back up at home and I’m glad I did.

I took the long drive through the city, not because the streets were so bad but because it was so beautiful outside and I wanted to prolong the moment. At home I changed into more appropriate clothes and shoes and went for a walk in the snow.

You guys, it was sooooo perfect. It wasn’t even cold and it was snowing like crazy. Not many cars and people were on the streets – just me and the crunching snow below my feet. I glided through tire tracks, pretended I was an airplane with my arms outstretched wide, sang my favourite Swedish Christmas song and threw snowballs. Childish? -Maybe!! Worth it? -Definitely!!!

I tried taking pictures with my cell phone but they mostly ended up too dark or crappy but here are some of them anyway:

And this is what happened over night. According to my ruler it’s been 7cm but it’s thawing now.
