Weather Bomb at St. John's

Yesterday (25 Jan), I was working in my office when a friend of mine came and warned me about the snow storm, called weather bomb. I never heard of anything like weather bomb before. It was a fast moving storm with significant snow accumulation.

When I returned home the storm was beginning, but it was not that bad until I decided to go to grocery store near my house, Dominion. I was completely covered in gloves, snow boot, hat, scarf and certainly snow jacket. I started walking toward Dominion but just after few minutes I found my self at the middle of a large amount of snow blowing in every direction, I could barely keep open my eyes since the snow particles could enter into them.

I started laughing at that time, it was all fun. The good thing was that the temperature wasn’t very low (around -3) so I didn’t feel freezing. Finally when I got there, my pants were absolutely soaked. Thanks to the cab I didn’t come back on foot; enough fun for one day.

Check this link, you will find some photos from St. John’s snow, which can give you an idea of what I am exactly talking about!!

It's a small world after all, Ha?
I was studying for my Master at UT during 1372 till 1376 while Mr. Behi was undergraduate.So since then we became good friends an we did some great research/job togather. Last time I saw him and Mrs. Behi (your cousine!) was tow years ago, before I moved to US. Any how, it is exciting to know that you are a relative of my best friend.
Take care and good luck with your study.
