On Tuesday (16th December) I had an examination in the evening and it was snowing lightly when I walked to the examination hall from my lab at six. Over the last couple of weeks or so, I have become accustomed to light snow flurries and this one didn't feel much different. When I came out of the hall at 9:00 pm, however, I stopped dead in my tracks. The world was covered in several inches of white snow. Everything I saw was white. Students were throwing snow balls at each other.
I took out my camera and took soome pictures. Later when I walked back from the station to my house in the snow I called home and shared my excitement with my parents and sister. Everything looked much brighter than other nights because of the high reflectivity of the snow covered ground. I even went to the park early on Wednesday morning to take photos.
I do not have too many words to describe my feelings. This is primarily because seeing and feeling snow for the first time is such a different experience that it is very difficult to describe. It is also difficult for me to write because I was forced to stay indoors and study most of this time as I had another examination on Wednesday. Maybe some other day I can write about what playing with snow feels like, or how to build a snowman. For now, I will only share some photos of my surroundings and let my camera do the talking.
The melting of the snow can look very beautiful too!
