Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Standard

Oh dear. As soon as my last post appeared, I was bombarded with emails, messages and phone calls from readers (friends and family included) telling me that I was oh-so wrong about the snow dancing its last waltz!

“Hold on a sec,” remarked a dear friend, “we are braced for a catastrophic snow storm and you’re dreaming of the last waltz? Which world are you living in!”

Clearly, in a tropical world. And NOT in a ‘snowflakes-that-stay-on-my-nose-and-eyelashes’ zone, where temperatures dive deep below freezing point. Obviously, my weather antenna is all haywire.

Oops!

So now in appreciation of their heroic efforts in battling the snow, I decided to include here certain photos which they sent to me as proof. I am happy to add that they readily permitted me to share these shots of the incredible scenes through my blog. Perhaps as evidence towards my guilt, eh? Haha. Anyway, a great big ‘thank you all!’

They say a picture speaks volumes. Just look at all that snow! Brr.

And finally, dear reader, wherever you dwell, please be safe, stay well and God bless.

Today’s post is rather special. In fact, it’s very special. Apart from thanking autumn for affording us the privilege to view such breathtakingly extraordinary sights, I also want to convey tremendous gratitude to you – yes, you!

My writing today is a tribute to all my readers – those who visit my blog regularly; those who type out a comment; those who click on the ‘like’ button; those who just pop in for a quick visit to peek at what I write about, and, for those who just tip-toe in quietly, check out my site, and perhaps, ne’er to see me again! No worries.
