The White Stuff

We finally had our first significant snowfall of the season - November 27, 2012 - so a little late for us.

Typically we've had a couple significant snowfalls by now, but they usually melt quickly (as this morning's already has).

Here are a few scenes of the snow! I'm so cheerful about it, ha!

And a perfect song to set the mood:

Thank you so much for the pictures of the first significant snowfall of the season in St. John´s, SignalHillHiker!

I see few snow, perhaps just one inch or less, I don´t know. As I read you, this first significant snowfall has arrived a little late, but don´t worry I´m sure that Winter will bring you heavier snowfalls. I hope so too. And I hope to see more pictures of St. John´s along next Winter.

St. John´s looks even prettier under the snow, as I can see in your very nice shots.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

By the way, have you changed your nickname at SSP?

That´s a serious snowfall. Beautiful shots and city.

Gracias, Senor. We need some good pics of Madrid as well, take some!

I still sing in my head:

And, let's be honest, it's no coincidence they said, "Hey, **** Italian, let's sing in Spanish!" and then became a worldwide phenomenon:
