It snowed! Or did it? To understand why the things below are so damn special, we need to clarify: we are in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Last saturday when I opened the shades on the windows, I was surprised: there was snow!! Or, something like snow layer, as when I opened my eyes wider, saw the details. Approximately 2 cm white carpet on the streets.
Not much, but usually you really can’t hope in more, some years even less: none at all. We had the brilliant (?) idea. Let’s run outside after the first coffee and have some fun before this little is gone because of gentle winter temperatures and expected rain later!
And yes we did, like two 6 years olds, dress on (or Suit On, for Iron Men among us), calling Roxy (our Bengal cat) too, and running to the nearest bushes and fields, and tried the quality of this Poor Men’s Snow with a little snowball fight:
We did not draw hearts in the snow, neither made snow angels, but we showed our happy for sure…on our ways:
And there it was, our next opponent. We discovered that lakes, channels are completely frozen (although cannot skate on, it is a relatively thin ice), so my “brilliance” showed again, on a 6 years old’s level: let’s break big chunks out of!
And if we were at it, why not trying if we are strong in the Force, melt that ice…or give a fair try at least:
Seriously, no worries, don’t pull the alarm bells, no need for therapies!
Just more SNOW!
