Let it Snow

South African Country Life - - Your Letters -

When I saw your post on A Win­ter Won­der­land in pics as snow hits SA on your web­site, I just had to share our ex­pe­ri­ence. When we heard snow was fore­cast, my hus­band and I de­cided to head out to Tul­bagh on Sun­day and stay the night so we could

get to the snow nice and early. We were not dis­ap­pointed. We left at around 9h00 and as we were head­ing up the moun­tain to­wards Ma­troos­berg Pri­vate Na­ture Re­serve, the con­stant rain turned into snow.

The kids loved ev­ery sec­ond of run­ning and throw­ing snow­balls. My six-year-old boy Eli­jah never wears shoes and af­ter a few min­utes of run­ning around in his wellies, de­cided it wasn’t even worth it in the snow. He only lasted about ten min­utes be­fore putting them back on. The snow was so soft and white and it was so won­der­ful to see ev­ery­one hav­ing fun. (edited)
