It Finally Snowed in Christchurch

I woke up this morning to find everything covered in snow. Tree branches were coated in crystal ice, houses in my neigbourhood had snow caps on the roofs and everything else was blanketed in white. I couldn’t believe it was happening because I had waited 2 winters to experience this snow-vaganza. When it finally happened, it just felt magical. What I enjoyed the most was watching large snowflakes fall from the sky. It is the most beautiful sight I've ever seen.

It stopped snowing a few hours ago but I am still at awe watching the snow melting away. As I am typing this, my little snowman which is a bit crooked now, is melting to death. Goodbye my little friend. It was a pleasure making and dressing you. What a time we had while it snowed!

This is one winter I will remember forever. I leave you with these photos taken around the neighbourhood and city centre :)

Snow? Oh I thought it's summer there. :p Hehe.
That's awesome..I never touched a snow, and I hope to feel it..the real one, not the fake one. Hehe.
Great moment you have there. ;)
Cheers! ^^

Snow! What a pleasant surprise for you, Lizee, esp after missing it two winters! I can see how you've enjoyed yourselves.

And you're really a very fine writer! Perhaps I'm repeating myself here. :-)
