LUMI, SNOW, SNJÓR, SNÖ, SCHNEE, NEVE, NEIGE















Hello winter!

A morning walk with new sounds under steps in daybreak. Everything was more silent. Tiny steps of winter beings visible, they have been busy. The wind very sharp, the lake is still wavy.

Have a calm weekend, stay warm!

    Is it so early? Or is it normal where you live?

  2. I can't believe my eyes, but it looks beautiful and so silent! I like the tiny steps - someone was surprised, too!:)
    Maybe you would like to know the word for snow in Bulgarian? "Сняг", pronounced [snjag].
    Have a cosy weekend!:)

    1. I made a mistake - the pronunciation is [snjaK]...

    2. That word for snow is very pretty too. "Snjak", I will repeat today while walking, as new snowflakes are slowly floating in the air (the old snow already disappeared).

    1. (: How is it in there? Also there I once saw the first snow. Living high above it was beautiful to see the Taunus hills and see the parking lot under with darker squares after cars had gone to work.

    1. It does not happen that way so often here. Lovely to see all those leaves over the snow.

  21. Looking outside it almost feels like Christmas time. It started snowing here in the area of Munich on Saturday and on Sunday everything was white!
    Very early this year, many people haven't had a chance yet to switch to winter tires on their cars.
    I like the suomean/finnish word for snow very much. Japanese "yuki" is not bad either.
    Have a lovely week!

    Greetings,
    Chisa

      Thank you so much. Your cards will fly over the seas and oceans very soon with greetings of the last remnants of the first snow.

  23. And the Polish word for snow is "śnieg" :)
    We've already had one, but not so heavy and not so beautiful as in your place.
    Stay warm,
