Rudolph and those with the Salomon event left for dinner in Leavenworth. Stifter, 29, and Carlsen, 38, headed outside to work on their article for Powder. Among the assembled were Jim Jack, in red pants, and Tiffany Abraham, in red jacket. There was so much new snow.
Like most African countries, tales about snow and how cold it gets in American is quite common. Some find it amusing, entertaining, and beautiful while others find it just irritating.
I however find it the combination of it all. At first it is beautiful, amusing and entertaining but it becomes boring soon enough. I mean hearing the same stuff all the time gets boring at some point.
And believe me, they attract a good number of people. My mother personally took me shopping! I mean I am twenty-two, for crying out loud!
But then, she wanted to ensure I got the right clothing to arm myself against this unimaginable, horrible, despicable cold!
In hindsight, I am glad she came, because I was certainly going for cute outfits that may not give me the warmth I seek. She was there like a bell in my ears, reminding me of what I should be ready for. I have heard so many boring tales about how cold it gets in the states that I think some are alter exaggeration.
But, I did learn my lessons. To say I was excited is an understatement. I came loaded with hope, enthusiasm, a focus and centered mind. And yes, well armed against the cold.
My first snow experience was in Chicago. I had a connecting flight from Chicago to Des Moines. I was meant to spend two hours in transit.
It took longer than that and the flight was almost canceled because of the weather. I was glad the flight was not canceled that would have been a terrible ideal of its own.
Much to my relief, I just had to stay for more hours. I stood near the airport exit and whenever the doors were open, the cold wind greets me angrily.
I looked outside to see massive pile of snow all around. I wore thick clothes, but nothing prepared me for this kind of cold. Immediately, I took out my winter shoes, gloves, winter hat from my hand luggage and wore them.
It felt better, but I was still shaking from the cold.
I have never known this much cold. Even the sight of the snow for the first time was not all that pleasing. I was more concerned about getting warm than appreciating the sight of the snow as beautiful as it was. This is a far cry from what I saw and what I will learn to live with for a couple of months.
On landing at the Des Moines airport, I was picked up by my contact person. He told me that on that particular day it was not cold.
If this is not cold I said to myself, what is cold then? Well that answer came sooner than I expected. The following days were horrible.
I caught flu immediately. But, there was a balance I suppose. My excitement for school outweighed my desire to stay inside and keep warm. That helped thicken my resistance to the cold. For the days to come however, I learn to adjust, not that I have a choice! Maybe it is just me taking notice.My first in-snow experience Please check out the new club website for the Cayman Club at arteensevilla.com If this is your first visit, be sure to check out the FAQ by clicking the link above.
It was my first time seeing snow ever and as cheesy as it sounds, it looked quite magical seeing the little flakes floating down.
Having lived in Singapore all my life where there is sun all year round, the only time that I've seen anything close to snow was from my parent's old icebox or the skating rink in the mall in Jurong East before it. My first attempt to experience snow was back in October in Japan. but I guess it was way too early for me to find snow in Japan.
So for me to check that item in my bucket list, I made sure that the next time I visit Japan, it should be in time for winter with snow. That's what started my research into BB creams and then eventually Asian beauty in general, and now, this blog! My Adventures By Wade Frazier.
