Spring frost

Just when you thought that it’s time to pack the winter clothes since the temperatures are now double digits during the daytime, when suddenly it’s freezing point once again and it’s snowing! I’ve learned from the previous six winters here that the season isn’t over until the last snowfall in late March. When was it when it snowed heavily on March 31? 2004? 2005? I couldn’t remember exactly but I was amazed that such a snowfall could occur in spring.

The cold spell began last Tuesday and it will continue until Friday. Unfortunately, we’ll have a rainy Saturday. Koreans call this last cold snap as “꽃샘추위” (kkot saem-chu-wi) because “the winter is jealous of the spring flowers”. After this, it’s going to really be spring — with weekend rains and yellow dust. Can’t wait for the flowers to bloom!

Soon it’s going to be summer and for those who are planning to go to the beach, be physically prepared as early as now. There are various ways to be in shape this summer, like Solo Slim. Am I thinking so much in advanced?

    Hmmm… know what,I’m interested in one question – if there’s snowfall in spring – then how about a global warming and so on??? I don’t quite get the point…Such snowfalls are over Europe and USA, where global warming must be the fastest!
