Weekend Assignment #42

Weekend Assignment #42: Share your favorite story of Winter cold -- preferably (but not necessarily) involving something freezing inconveniently and humorously.

 

Well as I've probably told everyone I grew up in the South, and the most snow I've ever seen is maybe a half inch of snow.  But years ago I went to Europe in Febuary.  Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy.  Switzerland was the coldest.  I'd never seen snow like this in my entire life, I loved it at first and did all the fun things like bobsled, play in the snow.  This picture was of me in St. Moritz, Switzerland, definately the coldest place I've ever been.  When I was in Italy it was so cold, and I had forgot my muffs and anything to go over my head.  It was during Carnival, so I found one of the biggest afro's I could find, it fit over my ears and kept me warm.  By nighttime when we got back to Austria.  I took off the Afro, and it was actually frozen from the boat ride I had taken.

 

Extra Credit, song that reminds me of Winter

I just came in from a walk.  It is 16 degree with the wind chill being 6.  I wore a fur hat and fur coat topped off with a wool coat, boots a sweat suit, and...of course gloves, proving once again there is no such thing as cold weather just under dressing!

Of course I could barely walk.  Your trip sounds enchanting!  Wish I were there too.  Did you mean an afro hair peice, hilarious!
