Hubby was out this afternoon to check on the taxi car in the parking lot. He called his brother and asked for help just in case the car was snowed in. It was indeed, because they needed to tow it. It didn’t concern me much cos I didn’t know how it looked like out there. After getting a warning signal 2 yesterday, I could only see that the snow has gotten thicker and higher. True to say, this is the worst winter I’ve had in my entire stay in this country. Hubby is also beginning to complain now. Soon we will file our complaint to the weather bureau. As if only we could, lol!
Recently, I bought another down jacket and a pair of boots. I am satisfied with the jacket but not the boots because I didn’t know the would be rather thick like now. I asked hubby how it was outside and he said it was terrible. I should have bought a pair of Bronte boots. My boots don’t really keep my feet warm all the time. And if I wore thick socks the boots would be impossible to zip. I felt several times how my feet froze after walking on snow with unsuitable boots. But it’s spring in two weeks so I am indecisive to buy a pair now. Though this kind of boots are year-round boots. Maybe I should. I should not?
Now I know how it’s like when snow falls everyday. I can’t seem to imagine living every winter like this. It gives me a thought to start saving so we could fly to a warmer city in the next winter season. Just a thought. What are your thoughts? 🙂
Go ahead and buy it. You can still use it next year or even sell it on ebay.

I can’t imagine being where you are now in that situation with the weather.
I’m on the north east tropical coast of Queensland Australia where its been raining daily (or nightly) for the past month but its made everything beautiful and green. But…it’s stinking hot.
.-= Sean K´s last blog ..How to Record Video Tutorials Free. =-.
I wish it would rain here soon, too. I’m waiting for the first rain of Spring, actually cos I want to see how the snow melts. Seems like we never get rid of hot and cold weather.
Dana @ Blogging Update says
It seems that you have bad winter there — but here we have bad raining seasons too. So bad that flood our town.

Snow and rain is giving nature problems. And we are just victims.
I think that it looks good. Never know that you are also using boots in tehre.

Hehee, I’ve been living here for more than ten years now but I’ve only started using boots two years ago. I needed to. 🙂
S.Pradeep Kumar says
Yeah.. you should have brought! 😆 😛
BTW, those boots look cool!
.-= S.Pradeep Kumar´s last blog ..HellBound Bloggers Gets A Thesis Makeover =-.
Yes, and comfy too. I have seen similar type but not Bronte.
why not having a vacation here in PH during winter? Would that be possible… but i think i would suggest the Bahamas or Peru… i’ve heard that it is really a nice place…

We were in Davao in July 2009. It’s expensive to travel every year. And we didn’t know that winter would be this extreme this year. Sana nga sa susunod na winter ay makauwi kami diyan.
BTW, what would happen to those cars in the picture?
.-= sernan´s last blog ..5 Reasons why people blog =-.
The cars still work normally when the snow was removed. When not in used, the battery might need recharging.
I have yet to experience such snowfall but yes, too much of everything is not that good. I wish snow to stop soon. And Re.: re-location it is upto you.
Yey, Hobo, you’re in India. It snows in the northern part there, right? So you just have to drive up north to experience snowfall.
I have not seen or touch snow before. But I know that living in a cold country is not easy. I worked in Amsterdam, but not during winter, before and I couldn’t stand the cold weather.
The boots look nice. The funny thing is that, although we don’t have winter here, some youngsters love to buy and wear boots. Heheheh
.-= willie´s last blog ..Entering the village =-.
Hahaa, same in the Philippines. I wonder how warm it is to wear this kind of boots in your country.

If that effect your health then buy it, we really want to see you healthy and I wish I will save your photography work everyday through your blog. Your photography always remind me my fiancee. She is also good with camera. I don’t know how she make image look so good while I’m may be a worst with camera. 🙂

You should encourage your fiancee to start a photo blog. Well, we all go through as a novice and until now I consider myself as such when it comes to photography.
Buy it! You’ll use it pa rin naman eh next time. I second with Sernan’s suggestion, have a vacay here in Pinas during winter, kaso kagagaling nyo lang dito last year. Kami naman dito sa Pinas na super init na eh gustong makaranas kahit isang tabong snow! 😀

Naisip ko nga din yun. Titingnan ko uli kung meron pang ganyan ang style.
Naku! talagang magastos kapag taon-taon ang uwi diyan.
Hahaa, kung pwede lang itapon diyan, ano.

Parang mabibili ko na yata ito kasi ang dami nyo nang nagsabi, hehee.

tropical countries will be great destinations to visit to escape the winter blues. we’ll be travelling to some places in europe next month and hopefully the weather is not too cold.

Oh, good for you! If this winter doesn’t extend, it is normally fine in March. It’s still cold but it will start to look green again.
