First Snow



I was clamoring for it all week. There is something magical about the first snow of the year. Actually for me, every snow is magical. I can take winter until April if there is lots of snow.

Yesterday, I was disappointed as the rain fell down in Zurich. The wind was snapping around, breaking branches and inverting umbrellas. In the evening a calm settled over the city as the rain and wind ceased.

I met a friend out for some chatting, some drinks and dancing. When we were leaving the bar late into the night, the first flakes were falling onto the streets. Zurich is beautiful in a snowstorm, like a city in a snowglobe.

When I woke up this morning there was a dusting covering the city and the sun was shining. Throughout the day we have had snow showers and its a great day to be snuggled safe in the house. I plan to light the wood stove tonight for the first time.

The forseeable weather forecast is calling for snow, snow and more snow. I am a happy camper.



Random dude in bar last night(slurring):
Would you like to join me for one drink?

I'm drinking.

Water.

With bubbles.

I was planning to come to Zürich this week, but it has fallen through. Pity.
When I was working in Konstanz, I loved watching the Säntis mountain range light up when the first snows came...

Nothing better than a drunken European claiming not to be drunk.
