It snowed yesterday morning in Rome.
I could sense that there was something different. The colour. It seemed a lot brighter than usual. I pulled back the curtain and I was just amazed at what I saw.
Oh my! Its snow!
It was my first time seeing snow ever and as cheesy as it sounds, it looked quite magical seeing the little flakes floating down.
Having lived in Singapore all my life where there is sun all year round, the only time that I’ve seen anything close to snow was from my parent’s old icebox or the skating rink in the mall in Jurong East before it got torn down.
Excitedly, I went out to head to the park near our house have a look see.
It was really cold outside. Every step I take feels like I’m crunching the snow below my boots. That reminds me, Ugg boots are not good for snow, since the snow can seep in and melt on your feet.
Everything was covered in white flakes, it was so beautiful. I never thought that I’d ever see snow in Rome since Cart told me that its not so frequent for Rome to have snow. The frequency is about once every 10 years or so.
So even if snow might not be a big deal, seeing this was quite special to me.
I was amused to see a couple of kids trying to slide down using the snow sled. The funny thing is that the snow wasn’t thick enough.
And there were some who were throwing snowballs at each other.
I didn’t think that I could do the same since my fingers already felt like they were going to get frostbites if I stayed out even longer. I haven’t even touched the snow!
In any case I couldnt help but to take the opportunity to do one of the things that I love to do …
Unfortunately the snow didn’t last too long and by the afternoon, it the snowfalls stopped and the white slowly melted away.
Anyhow, this is a quick video I took while it was still snowing just for memory’s sakes 🙂
