Stormy Winter

大约两星期前的一天,气象电视台报导:“This is a major event!” (中文翻译该是:大件事 !)

该算是的。一场暴风雪在那晚降l临加拿大的东南部。多伦多有15公分的积雪,有些地区的积雪高达40到60公分。

之前的晚上,雪已下得很大。醒来时,满地已铺了厚厚的一层雪, 雪还在下着。

这是我从我那第十层 楼见到的雪景

About two weeks ago, one day, the weather network said : “It is a major event !”

That’s right, there was a snowstorm warning in South East of Canada overnight. Toronto had 15cm snowfall and some places had up 40-60cm snowfall.

It was already snowing heavily the night before. When I woke up in the morning, everything was covered by think snow and it was still snowing.

This is the view I saw from my unit at the 10th floor。

驾驶在这种街上是非常困难的。通常的驾驶速度是10到20公里左右。很多车辆会卡在雪路中无法前进。有时,只有出来推车才可继续上路。可幸的是,这里的司机都理解及有耐性。

Many cars could not move properly, and they drove in snail pace, around 10-20km/hour. It was common that cars stucked in the middle of the roads because of the snow. Sometimes, drivers had to come out from the car to push it to run again. Thankfully, the other drivers here were pretty understanding and patient.

我们都很兴奋,赶快穿了层层的厚衣,出去拍暴风雪景。

We were quite excited by the snowstorm, quickly wrapped ourselves with layers and layers of clothing, went out to take some photos.

第二天早上,雪已停了,路也已被清理。

The snowstorm stopped the morning after, and the streets had been cleaned.

可是,我们家的窗都结冰了,开不到!! 没办法,这是在加拿大生活的一部份……

However, I could not open my windows because they were all frozen !! Well, this is part of life in the winter here….
