So couple of days ago was my first “first snowfall”. Is it a thing? I’m not sure, but I’m making it a thing anyway if it isn’t.
Why is it special to me? First, I grew up in a tropical country. Second, I am currently living in South Korea, a country that has four seasons. And lastly, I am living in a city that doesn’t normally experience snow.
Odd as it may sound, but I have read online and learned from locals here that it s very rare to have snowfall in Ulsan. Last one they had was many years ago.
So, when it snowed the other day I was ecstatic!
I was with my classmates in the lab, talking about something (I forgot), when one of us pointed to the window… “Is that snow?” he said.
The next second I was already in the corridor running towards the bigger window to get a better view. I recorded some of it here:
And also here…
It was really nice! I am hoping we get more this year. Else, I would have to visit other cities to experience snow. Not that I wouldn’t want that, too. 🙂
P.S. I saw this photo posted on flickr, and it was labelled “Ulsan Snow”. I’m guessing this was one of those few years when the city gets to experience the ‘unusual’ snowfall. – sorry if you expected this post to have this level of snowfall, just grabbed it online.
