It’s mid-October and none of us expected to see snow so early his year, especially baby Sara who even didn’t know that something like snow exists. Yesterday at least we were able to go for a walk, but today the snow is so high that even our ‘heavy duty’ pram is not able to combat it. Fortunately the electricity has been repaired. Yesterday we have power cuts several times during the day as the snow was too heavy for cables and there was a danger that there would be no electricity (= no heating!!!) during the night. A lot of tree branches broke as well and some streets were closed this morning. Trees are still full of autumn leaves which soaked and become too heavy with a layer of snow on the top of them, causing big danger for passing cars and people. So it was safer to stay home, listen to the music and spend some time on the balcony looking at beaufitul winter landscape and thinking that in a few months time we will be in Africa and free from this kind of surprises (apart from power cuts of course).
