Beautiful Snow Pictures

11 02 2010

There was heavy snow in Mid-Atlantic,USA over the weekend.

Aunty Selina sent me these beautiful photos 🙂

They were taken around her house in Maryland.

Aunty Selina works at the World Bank in Washington DC.

Her office was closed (and it is still close) since Monday because of the heavy snow 😦

Maybe the offices and schools will only be open next week.

I read in CNN that there are blizzards in the east coast of USA.

Blizzard is snow storm.

I wish I can go there to play in the snow :mrgreen:

Anyway in Malaysia it is very, very hot 😳

The temperature is about 91°F.

I hope on 13 February 2010 it will be snowing in Malaysia 🙄
