While it was snowing...

It snowed in Plochingen last day. I opened the window and lo! there it was like a dream, from a fairy tale. Beautiful! I walked out first with a group then again alone. It was freezing. But it was such an amazing experience that I stayed out for as long as I could. Walking alone in the night while it was snowing…

I remember an ad I saw long time ago on the idiot box – showing the joy of someone who had seen snowfall for the first time. It was exactly how I felt – like an innocent child playing with a new toy. A grown up kid living the dream he had forever… The Germans around us must have been thinking we must be crazy. Grown up boys and girls – “software engineers” – in their true color.. he he.. Feeling something for the first time brings in a lot of emotions difficult to describe… but simply in 3 letters… WOW! :)Aside: I hear all this romanticizing of snow lasts only for a week or two. When the cold gets to your spine people say romance turns to discomfort to irritation to anger to submission! :( Oh lord, it is predicted to go down to -10°. Best of luck to me!
