Ferrets, Living in... Shanghai, Uncategorized SHANGHAI SNOW 16 December 2010

After the excitement of yesterday’s snow, we woke up to absolutely frigid temperatures today. The snow hadn’t melted overnight, but it’s this glorious soft powder-snow that’s dry. So I’m thankful it’s not that gross and grey slushy kind when it’s all half-melted! It’s actually really pretty to look at, and fascinates me to no end. I know it’s totally dull and uneventful for anyone that experiences snow every year, but hey, we come from a very temperate climate so we NEVER see snow! Thus why the novelty still hasn’t worn off and I’m so delighted with it 😛


The compound where I live, with snow-capped rocks

2″ of powder-soft snow covering the grass

What’s a ‘lil ferret to do in this sort of weather? Snuggle up on the couch 🙂

Star, totally zonked out.

    I’ve lived in snowy climates all my life and I still experience that fascination after a good snowfall. Before it’s all churned up it’s so amazing, beautiful and peaceful.

      I’m with you! Fortunately we haven’t had that dirty/slushy snow melting – it seemed to have just evaporated or something as the ground’s all dry. Guess that’s a good thing 😛
