Snow!

Wednesday, January 24, 2007

We had snow today on the south coast of England. This is my 3rd winter living here and it's never happened before. It was beautiful to wake up to (considering I didn't have a car to clean the snow off of).
On my way to the meet Dan at the gym, I wasn't enjoying the cold temperatures, icy walkways and wind in my face. That soon changed though when I passed several workman having snowball fights and loving every minute of it. It was a delight to watch grown men laughing and behaving like children in a winter wonderland they don't often get to experience. When Dan arrived for our appointment, his face was all pink from the cold as he walked up to me with bright eyes saying 'Isn't it great?!'
Coming from Jersey, I can't say I get terribly excited about the snow and wasn't sorry to see it was gone within a few hours, but I must admit that it was really nice seeing the people around me get such pleasure out of it.
