It's freaking cold up here

Living in the southern hemisphere countries, you need to cope with the hectic weather. Unlike Malaysia, the only thing that we should be worried about is whether it's gonna be very hot, or will it rain the next day. The worst case scenario, if it's hot, all we need to do is just stay in a building and drink lots of fluid to keep us hydrate. And during rainy season between the month of December - February, just get ready for the pouring rain the whole day and chill weather. We just love the sound of the rain tapping the roof and the smell in the air aftermath raining. And if it's during the king's tide, just get your boat ready!

The view from our apartment's window in summer

Last night, we had a severe snow storm. It didn't stop till late afternoon. Based from the weather forecast channel, the entire eastern coastal of U.S, from Georgia to Maine were in the parameter of this storm. Yeap, there was a strong wind with snow as thick as 8" blanketed our place.

The same spot when it started to get stormy yesterday

The temperature drop drastically from 10 deg Celsius to -2 deg Celsius within just a few hours. Most of the schools, colleges and offices in our area were closed and car accidents occured everywhere due to the slippery road and limited view distance because of the snow and fog. Tomorrow, it's gonna be colder with expected -10 deg Celsius. Brrrrr*

How we wish we are on the beach somewhere back home, basking under the hot humid sun

Time and time again, we miss the weather at home. The hot, humid and bright shiny sun and the heavy rain the whole day with thunder and lightning. And this time, we vow not to complain if it is too hot in the middle of the day. Promise.
