Winter arrives in Seoul

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

With a vengence.

We received over 4 inches of snow today. To many in North America (and other colder regions of the world), 4 inches is a mere dusting.

But it's enough to shut down a city that rarely sees more than a dusting of snow - even in the coldest of months. It shut down all our schools, and all non-mission essential personnel on post were asked to leave by 1300. All events planned for tonight were also cancelled.

As I said, 4 inches will shut this city down. It also means NO outside bike riding.

So it's back on the trainer again tonight - for 40 minutes. Now to finish the evening curled up to a good book and some hot chocolate!

Winter days aren't so bad after all.

Onward.

    I live in southern New Mexico and we don't get must more than a dusting most of the time here. When we do happen to get 4 inches or snow, maybe once a year (sometimes not even that often) it shuts down everything here too. Sorry you can't ride the bike.

    Coldest winter of my life was spent near the DMZ in Korea back in 1987/88. Stay warm and good luck!

    We had a shot of snow and cold weather and now we're back into the 20s at night and the mid-40s during the day. Unfortunately we also have 20 mph winds, so it does feel colder than the actual temp.

    You made a good adjustment to get a ride indoors. The book and hot chocolate sounds like a good ending to yur day!!!

    I was in Seoul to give a lecture some years ago and it was wet snow. Even that was bad.
