I awoke to hearing my son Ube saying “28 minutes” as he was watching some App on my phone relating to expected snow fall in the area. I hadn’t expected any snow here because it hasn’t snowed where we are for over 90 years according to some information. Yet as they waited for the bus there was still no snow in sight. Was a little disappointed as the kids and my wife April have never experienced snow before.
But as we headed out of our street we could see a lot of cloud cover in some areas across the lake. So we decided to head down to La Zenia and as we did so the snow started to form. Initially it was like a few bits of dust and grew to the point of snow flake formations and as you can hear from the video April was happy to experience snow for the first time. Sad thing is we didn’t get to see the kids experiencing the snow at school but they did tell us all about it when they got home.
On the way back from the shopping mall we headed on up to the vineyards and nature park where we bumped into a friend. She admitted she felt like a kid as it was the first time she had experienced snow. She remembers her grandfather telling her about it when she was a child but now experiencing it herself for the first time.
