Before I bid goodbye to winter

Spring officially started yesterday. In fact, we were greeted with the soft sound of rain when we woke up this morning. Indeed, spring is here. But I’ve heard that some places in the U.S. are still experiencing cold front weather, not to mention snow, only after a few days of having temperature at 70s. The weather can really be likened to a woman’s mind, fickle-minded. Anyway, it gave me the idea to post my snowstorm photos from last month. My bad, I forgot to blog about it before. It’s never too late to share snow photos, is it?

It rarely snows in Arkansas. Well, at least in our part of Arkansas. I think we only had a few bad weather and one big snowstorm this winter which happened on the first week of February, if I'm not mistaken. Although it's extremely cold when it snows, I didn't mind going out to explore the perfectly white neighborhood with a camera in hand of course. It may have been an extreme inconvenience to many when there's snow, but at least it had offered chances for kids and young at heart like me to have fun out and snap away pretty photos. There's no medical basis to this claim, but I've noticed less acne breakouts in the wintertime for me, which is a great thing. I can minimize the use of BP medication on my face which tends to dry out my skin more. Anyway, hope you enjoy the photos below.

My snow wave

Cute angel, eh?

A taste of snow?!?

Unmindful of how cold the ground was, I just gotta have to make my snow angel.

8 inches of snow (happened only once so i enjoyed till it last)

I love how white and heavenly the surrounding was

I like the photos, and it was definitely a winter to remember for many around the U.S. North Carolina is done with snow here.

Have a great week my friend!

That's a lot of snow for your area, right? Good thing you took advantage of it. I love how you look like you're having so much fun in that kind of weather! ;)

Where's your snowman(or woman), Jenn? You know you have to build a snowman, right? ;)

-oh sorry have you been getting error code after you hit the publish your comment button as well? coz ive been getting that a lot lately. it's frustrating to keep typing the same message thrice coz it didnt go through the first time. arrg.

ah so it's not a flu. oh dear, i really hope you'll get better soon. it must have been hard to be sick and all. thanks for the nice comment my friend.

-i understand. you always get beaten with bad weather in that part of the country. kapoy pud puol di ba, hehe pero at least spring na. yeheey! we can keep winter behind us now. welcome spring! woohoo!

-thanks david! yes, it's great to know that spring is here. we can start spring cleaning and do more stuff outside the house. :)

-haha. yeah snowman! well, i'd love to but my body isn't that of a 10 yr old kid anymore, after 10 mins of being out in the cold, i shivered to death, ouch, sign of old age i guess, hahaha. yes, it's really a lot of snow for our area, it does not happen a lot though. so i took advantage of it. :)
