Now I was born in Omaha, Nebraska. But I moved to California when I was almost two years old. I don't remember anything about Nebraska. And I have once gone skiing on man-made snow. But I have never really experienced winter weather until last week when I visited the Milwaukee area.
I got to experience snow. The real stuff falling from the sky.
I was able to catch it on my tongue.
I was very impressed by how they looked.
They really were "snowflake shaped." I mean I've seen snowflake pictures. And as a child I did cut snow flakes out of paper. But it wasn't until this week that I had first hand knowledge that this was the case. When I got to see one up close.
This is not unlike the first time I went to London and I could see the cars driving on the left as the plane was landing. I had always heard this was what they did. And I had seen it on TV and in movies but you never really know until you see it for yourself.
