Snow Fort

It's been pretty warm these days. That meant we've got lots and lots of snow again. Yesterday and last week I spent 1,5 hours and 2 hours respectively to clear the yard from snow. Had to move some of the old snow to make room for new snow and due to my height, I couldn't use the big shovel to do that. That was why it took a long time to do it 'coz I had to use a children's shovel he he he...Good exercise, though! My arms are definitely sore afterwards.

Wanna see how high the pile of snow is in our yard? Today I went out just to show you the "snow fort" that we've built in the yard. I use myself as a point of reference (I'm 145 cm).

First pic: normal pose. Notice the higher pile on the right side of the pic. We have another pile on the left side of the pic which is probably a little bit higher than that.

P.S. If you're wondering what the yellow "armband" is, it's called a reflector. Because it can get SO dark here in winter (and it can get worse when it's snowing a lot), people wear it so that car drivers can see us when we're walking on the pavement or when we walk across the road. Esp. in the village roads there are normally no sidewalk for pedestrians, so pedestrians have to walk on the side of the road.

Second pic: tried to pose from one of the higher piles of snow.

Third pic: I was going to go higher up on the pile of snow, but managed to slip and fall down gracefully LOL!!! Actually if I want to, I can use this pile of snow to slide down. LOL!!! There's one benefit of being short HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHHHH...

Here's also a pic of a homemade Christmas gift that I got from my talented friend. :-D

And the last pic is the icicles forming around the bottom side of the roof...

Let's just see how much more snow we're going to have 'coz winter here lasts a long time still...if there's so much more snow coming later, it's going to be tough to find space to pile up the new snow.


  1. WOW, that is a lot of snow! And WOW for the spider too. :-) Very unusual gift.

    I love icicles, but those look a but scary.

  2. OMG....what a snow you have :D Disini khan saljunya sdh ilang y. Lucunya, Matthew ambil skop (mainan-nya) trus jalan ke pintu belakang. Soalnya wkt banyak salju khan dia main2 di kebon pake skop-nya hi hi hi.. aku bilang, wah... salju-nya udah ilang matthew. Trus dia balik lagi ke tmpt mainnya taro skop-nya :D
