It was fun to be with people who had never seen snow in person, let alone experience sub-zero temperatures. Those of us who grew up with snow took it as an opportunity to slip back into childish mode. A few of us spent the night (under a brilliant full moon) making snow angles, racing, and sumo wrestling on the frozen lake. Of course it was all for the benefit of our Malaysian classmate, who never had the childhood opportunities that we did.
seeing snow for the first time. i wonder what that must be like? i bet id play it cool and explain to people that i had seen it before on tv, and that it was what i expected. but i live in montana and all my birthday parties were cold and snowy in january.
