Beijing Snow 2011, the First Snow in Beijing for the year 2011

At 7:00am this morning, I’m still a little surprised to find that our residential block has been white blanketed by a light snow, though I did get the snow broadcast yesterday. 
It is the first snowfall in Beijing for the new year 2011! In addition, it has been the latest first snow in Beijing in a year for the past 60 years!!
After simple and quick washing, I take out my camera and shoot some pictures of our snow blanketed compound through my windows in my apartment both in the south and north.
Finishing my breakfast, I take the lift down and take the 20-minute walk to my office as usual. But today is a different day, a snowing day with all the trees and houses covered with a thin layer of snow, making everything surreal, no matter it is ugly or pretty. I can’t help shooting the pictures on my way to work!
Snow renders you a peaceful mind, though momentary.

  1. I woke up like 8 30am because I can hear shovels outside. I went to balcony, half asleep and stretched. when I opened my blinds- viola!!! all white!! I suddenly ached to eat biscuits and milk. I ate my breakfast by the window. it is soo cold but its all worth it. I love you sky.
