First snowflakes are falling

| Life in Holland | 2 Comments

Snowflakes are falling...Just the other day summer ended. Then came fall, and slowly but surely the temperature dipped downwards. Until below freezing, that's zero degrees centigrade. Brrr. Now the very first snowflakes are falling. Falling, falling, ever so gently, sticking to the surfaces everywhere, collecting and collecting. The thin white layer becomes slightly thicker until all around it is white, white and white. Millions, billions, trillion, zillions of snowflakes. An amazing and wonderful site.


We got our first layer of snow here yesterday, too. It only snowed out by where we live, not in by where I work. (60 mile difference) We got home late last night, and I was carrying Rosy into the house because she fell asleep on the way home. She was so excited that it *finally* snowed that she woke right up and wanted to put on her "snow boots" to play.

She and Gerald (hubby) just came in from playing in it today. There's barely enough left on the ground, but she played in it. :)

I love snow.


You must surf as much as I do! I guess you meant "wonderful sight" not "wonderful site".
