NBC Los Angeles – Winter storms unleashed days of downpours on California. These aerial images show the extent of the flooding and effects of the unrelenting winter storms throughout the state, including San Jose, where 14,000 people were evacuated after neighborhoods were inundated with water. Several more weeks remain in California’s wet season, which brings the potential for more damage.

The weather in United Kingdom is freezing cold on December 13, 2012 with the temperature between 2°c and 4°c.

Waterfalls were frozen with icicles hanging beautifully over the rocks, it is just like in a winter wonderland.

The River Thames froze at Wargrave, Berkshire, and canals iced over in London, Birmingham and Stockport.

Mail Online reported that, yesterday’s freezing fog and ice brought beautiful scenes to the countryside but transport chaos in many cities yesterday as temperatures plummeted to -10°c.

It is may cause a lot of trouble for the people around the area but the scenes are really beautiful.

Sh-sh-shivering Winter In Europe

9 02 2012

Now  there is a very cold winter in Europe.

Thick snows covered cars, houses and also trees.

Rivers, lakes and canals are frozen.

More than 400 people died.

But in Malaysia, it is very hot…..

I wish it snows in Malaysia 🙂

So, I wrote  a poem entitled, ‘Snowing in Malaysia’:

Snowing in Malaysia
If  only it ever be snowed….
….all over the Malaysian road
I’ll then be making snowman
or  maybe  some ‘snowvan’…
Playing with snowballs
and not
going to the malls
If Malaysia ever be snowed….

Here are some pictures of the cold winter in Europe:
