Snow in Korea
Despite my constant moaning about the cold in Korea, I must admit, that I love it when it snows. Being from Texas, there have been VERY few winters in which we have experienced a white Christmas. In fact, San Antonio last got a REAL snow when I was two years old and that wasn't at Christmas time. When I was in college we had a snow onValentines day and the entire campus came out to run around in the white powder falling from the sky. Some people (fraternity boys mostly) even got naked and ran around in front of the tower at UT.
So snow is a novelty to me. And who can say that a fresh fallen snow is not one of the most beautiful sights they have ever seen? I understand many of the states have had enough snow for a life time, and if I had had 50 ft of snow in one winter, I would probably feel the same way, but we haven't, so I still love it. So when we woke up one cold winter morning and large white snowflakes plungged from the evenly gray sky above glittering the pine trees with fairy dust making even the parkinglot seem magical. We took pictures to commemorate the glistening winter scene. I hope you enjoy, and for all those people who are so sick of being burried in snow, I am sorry for undulating you with more pictures.
