Let it snow, Let it snow

I’m a tropical girl who has never touched snow or experienced winter in my life time, the coldest temperature I ever felt was -+ 43 F / 6 C when I was in Italy, so can you imagine what will happen to me this winter season?

Back to my interview in May with US embassy for my Visa,

The lady asked me ; “What do you know about South Dakota?”

I answered ” It is not many people there, quiet, not traffic at all”

The lady : ” Anything else?”

Me : Um I guess that’s all.

The lady : Did your fiance tell you? How cold is South Dakota? You must be prepare for winter there.

Me : πŸ˜…πŸ˜β„β„

Lucky, it was summer when I came, so I adapted to the wheather and temperature easily, when my hubby said ; Gosh it is so hot today! I Just smile and say no 😜

But seasons change summer β˜‰ to fall 🍁 and will be winter⛄❄ in December.. One of the most common questions I received : are you ready for winter?? Β Me : Ummm

My preparation for winter :

  • Tea box
  • Hot chocolate mix

One of my dreams is sitting inside warm blanket having a cup of hot choco while watching the snow fall.

  • Winter clothes

In September we started shopping for winter gear, my hubby is not typically a shopping guy but was so patient to accompany me shopping, Mom in law knit scarf and gave me warm clothes, Sis in law sent some clothing and even my father in law collected some catalogues for  me to take a look (more shopping 😍😜)

YES winter! I’M ready!!

I was at home when my hubby called me “Are you seeing the snow?” I looked out the window “No, nope no snow here, its only raining” after I hung up the call 5min later snow!! Oopss snow come earlier than I expected October 6th, 2016 was my first snow!Β 

I ran outside and finally I TOUCH THE SNOW!Β I was estatic running all over the yard, taking video for my family!Β When hubby came home we threw snow ball and he took video of me.

How did it feel? Yes!! it is cold, soft and white. If you are same as me never touch snow and wanna feel how is it, go to your freezer and touch the ice flakes there it is exactly Β same feeling ( that what I always did with my sibling when we were kids πŸ˜„)Β 

I kinda like my first snow, it was light and was good introduction but what I did not like about was I had emergency harvest for out garden!


My ❀farmer helped with emergency harvest

We picked 33 squashs, peppers, greenbean, tomatoes, green onions, lettuce, corns and due the frost I lost all garden plants and my tomatoes.. that was sad 😀😒. 

The real snow began on Thursday night, November 16 with winter storm warning few days before. I woke up 5.30 A.M in the morning on Friday and I can not back to sleep I felt so fresh and ready for the day even it is so dark out side, that might be coz I excited to see snow again πŸ˜œπŸ˜πŸ˜„.

Indeed it was not as bad as the warning so I can play in the snow. I took Champ outside

Hi I'm Champ, I love snow!

Hi I’m Champ, I love snow!❄

Champ saw the snow .. He was sneezing and jumping to the snow and rolling and keep rolling. That was a real cute show by Champ.

What did I do in snow?

I had hot tea green tea.

I played with nieces at mom in law house

The girls were excited to play outside and want to build “big” snowmanβ›„(their big is not my big πŸ˜œβ˜ƒ) but not longer than 20min they felt cold and we all back to the house.

Do you want to build a snowman? β˜ƒβ„

I went exploring by myself ( Champ did’t wanna go, maybe he already tired of my craziness)

I walked for 3,2km past beautiful trees, ponds and corn field; such an exercise in cold temperature while my husband thought I was napping

I like to see the white snow sparkling like a million diamond, and it looks so bright outside
