Snow in Tabor

For anyone that knows me, I LOVE THE SNOW!!!  I love the first snow, and I only love the snow that is white and beautiful.  I am not a fan of the dirty slush that the rain turns the snow into but I always look forward to the first snow of the year.  Tabor did not disappoint.  Right now I am sitting in my flat in Tabor, Czech Republic looking out my window to a winter wonderland.  This town takes on a whole new beauty when it is white.  I feel like a Queen living in medieval times with castles covered in white.  There is nothing really profound to report other than I am just so in love with my life right now.  I walk out my front door and find something new to marvel at every day.
      I met some neighbors today because everyone was out shoveling snow from their front porch.  I didn't see the need since it is still HEAVILY snowing and whatever I shovel away, will just come back, but when in Rome.....
      This blog post will be more of a pictorial of my town.  But....some snow facts.....we don't have snow days here.  EVERYONE still goes to school, no matter how much snow there is on the ground.  They don't have school buses here, most everyone walks to school so there are no snow delays or cancellation of school.
      The lake on the right is called, Jordan, and when it freezes people ice skate on it....I can't wait.  I have always wanted to do that.

Tabor at night with the Christmas lights

You see small children EVERYWHERE with their parents pulling them on their sleds...ahh to be a kid again.

Christmas lights are beautiful

These parents don't let the snow keep them inside, strollers are everywhere prepped for the weather and getting their daily walk.  There must be tons of strollers (or as they call them here, prams) everywhere.  I think American's are whimps because when it snows in Lake Stevens, everyone locks themselves inside.

This picture was taken on my walk home from school.  The weather man actually got it right when they said that there would be "heavy" snow today.
       This is the street that leads up to my flat.  The building on the left almost seems to disappear against the fallen snow.

This is the main church in the old town square.  The middle area would be an ideal place for the ultimate snow ball fight......hmmmmm.....

The picture on the right shows the main Christmas tree.  The lights are on continually and they definitely highlight the Christmas spirit.  All there needs to be is a group of Carolers singing Christmas songs and it would feel like I was in some European country...wait a minute....I AM!

I live on the third floor of this building with the pizzeria on the bottom floor.  I never have to worry about not having enough to eat in the winter because I can always go downstairs and have a warm, freshly made pizza.

Katerina's mom put a Christmas wreath on my door and there aren't any Scrooge's inside these walls

The picture on the right is taken from my balcony....I can see James Bond racing across the frozen roof tops....and if Santa came here (which he doesn't) he could park the reindeer at one house and cover many homes in one stop since all the homes are so close together....
 The girl on the right was walking when she stopped to look up, opened her mouth and tried to catch the falling snow flakes....priceless
