Snow!

Tanya Simone Simpson

We finally had snow here! It arrived late Friday night, just a gentle dusting, enough to whisper the world soft and silent. On Saturday morning, I thought wandering around the snowy garden barefoot would be a nice way to celebrate Imbolc. I wandered for about a minute and then thought better of it, but it was a strange and lovely experience. Snow is beautiful when you have the option to experience it from somewhere warm.

On a more serious note, it’s absolutely freezing here at the moment and there are a lot of people sleeping rough. It was -7 C (that’s -19 F for my friends in the USA) and I honestly can’t even imagine what it would be like to sleep outside in these temperatures for even an hour, never mind a whole night, or longer. This is hypothermia, frostbite and death weather.

If you can donate to charities…

  1. That’s really nice! Living in a tropical country, I have never experienced snow in my entire life. A foreign friend told me there are different kinds of snow: dry and wet. It’s probably for the best that there’s snow in the Philippines, because we have a lot of homeless here, 😦 and people won’t survive in such cold temperatures.
