i live in a tropical country where there are only seasons: the hot season and the hotter season! LOL. Kidding aside, our country only has the wet and dry season. it has been one of the things in my bucket list to see snow. and last May 2011, i saw, touched, and rolled in snow!
it happened while i was on my europe tour where we went to Mt. Titlis in Switzerland. the SNOW is amazing! we were even lucky enough to see snowflakes falling.
i kinda always assumed that the image of a snowflake was just a pretty little drawing, i was completely surprised and amazed to see that snowflakes are really shaped that way when they fall
