Early this morning we discovered it was snowing here in Beijing! Three hours later it is still snowing! We have been outside and done the usual snowball and snowman (sort of) fun, but now, while shoes and clothes are drying off we are watching from inside our warm house as the snow falls, the ground gets whiter and some trees lose their branches under the weight of the snow. How exciting......we have never lived in a snow city before, and after years in the Middle East and other warn countries this is a real novelty!
