Last Friday night, I was invited to a friend's housewarming party and had about half an hour between coming home from work and being picked up by another friend.
While I changed out of my business clothes into something a bit more adapt for the party, I had the blinds down and it was dark outside.
|Just got ready for the evening with my friends. Nothing fancy except for the glittery hairband (if you can spot it).|
Half an hour later, when my friend rang the bell and I opened the door, I couldn't believe my eyes: it had snowed enough in those 30 minutes for the ground to be entirely white again, and it kept snowing and snowing!
The drive to the party was quite an adventure; it wasn't particularly far, but we saw several accidents on our way there, and I am glad my friend is a careful and responsible driver.
Anyway, the party was nice and by the time we left, the roads were mostly cleared.

It has not snowed again since the weekend, but it is still cold enough for me to long for spring, and I'll celebrate the day when I'll be able to leave the house not dressed as if for a polar expedition.
In the meantime, I am happy for the daylight lasting considerably longer than only a few weeks ago - I have even left the office some days when the street lights were not turned on yet!
