I arrived here in the US last December 12 of 07, time runs so fast and it’s already my 2nd Christmas without my family from Philippines. Reminishing my first travel alone going to other continent was fun and scary. A woman who is used with the warmed weather (80-90F) was exposed to freezing cold winter weather (0- -8F). Snow and chilly wind is always been part of winter. On my first month here I tried to avoid snow, I remembered my first snow experience, I just went out to take a picture and rushed back inside the house to keep warmed. Before I usually avoid snow as much as I can. Compared with my previous winter with this year, I think I’m already over now. For me this winter is much better compared last year eventhough snow and chilly wind started as early as late November.
