I woke up on December 20, 2009 and found the ground covered with plenty of snow. It was actually the second time in a month that we had snow fall. The first time was a few days earlier but with not much damages. As the news had it we were getting snow storm across Europe and with prospect of having a white Christmas.

I haven’t seen this much snow in years and was anxious to explore the neighborhood. By 15:00 hour I went outside to check on the temperature. It was not that cold so I decided to go for a long walk just for the heck of it.
