I am a snow baby no matter what age I get. It’s been snowing and it’s snowing again at this moment. But it will melt next week when the rain arrives. Then life blows again. I love walking on it and in it. In the Southern Finland, it’s never certain if there will be snow in the winter. This year those days were only a few. Weather here is weird. One day it’s sunny and there’s signs of spring. The next it’s snowing and it’s cold. Every year it surprises drivers. The schools and work places never get shut because of snow. Trains and buses gets in trouble but we still manage to continue with our lives. It’s not like in America where a little snow stops everything. Here we find it silly.
This week the South had a winter holiday so the snow came right on time. Unfortunately it was in the end of the week. I haven’t skied in years but walking in it, is good enough. It’s so soft but also it makes your feet tired. It’s good exercise and makes you warm. Snow can be a problem for drivers. They have to clean their window shields from the snow and maybe have troubles with starting their engines. But it’s not my concern since I don’t even have a driver’s license 🙂 I shouldn’t gloat for other people’s troubles but I still do. I can only enjoy the snow as much as I can. I live in Finland because of the snow. Without it, life would be much duller.
But snow does has its disadvantages and one of them is the melting process. When it’s gets warmer and it’s rain, it turns to slush. Then it’s no fun. Your winter boots get wet and you need to be careful where you walk. If it’s get cold again, it becomes ice and you can slip. I’ve slipped so many times, I walk much more careful now. I sprained my left hand once and I had to wear a cast for at least 6 weeks. It was the worse thing I’ve ever experienced and I never want to go through that again. Everytime I’m close to slip, my hearts skips a bit and I get cold sweat. I slipt once this year but luckily I didn’t break anything. An awful pain was the only thing and I don’t like it one bit. So there should be snow or no snow at all and nothing in between.
In the end the snow will go away and spring will come. That’s something that will never change. People should have it in mind that things can look bad now with all the snow but it won’t last forever. We don’t live in the Game of Thrones universe where winter can last several years. Even if winter is my favorite season, I still hope the spring will arrive soon. There is a time and a place for everything. I’m a snow baby who’s born in the beginning of summer. Yet I’m waiting for warmer days in anticipation like everyone else. We have four seasons and that’s a blessing.
