It is thundering and hailing outside as I ‘speak’! Snow storm is arriving as Metservice promised, and I cannot stress how excited I am. It’s not even solely because I have two massive essays due on this Wednesday which hopefully will be postponed, but I’m feeling spoiled by the fact that this is our second snow in one year.
A number of weather geeks have been over excitedly talking about this incoming snow storm on the net for a couple days now, one of the more memorable claim says, I might be paraphrasing here, ‘this is going to be an event that appears in future text books’. I fully understand how people, especially science people, get all excited and passionate over natural events like this. As a geography student myself, I do too, because you become part of the experience and history! Just like how I jumped up and down when I saw liquefaction in action after the earthquakes, you read and heard so much about it in text books, but they would never beat the real experience!
Enough writing for now! Heading outside!! 😀
P.S. Here’s a photo someone else taken in Rolleston right before the hail hit maybe 30 mins before. Citation needed.
