FSO: March 15: I Remember When.

I Remember When it was my first winter:
It was the winter of 1975 when I was a student in Windsor, Canada. This school yard was behind the apartment I stayed. During the school break, school children flolick. These photos were taken during the holidays, and we went to try out this fun. A couple of Canadian kids were there to show us play.

That was my first ever winter. They reported it was the coldest ever recorded, a minus 28 degrees. A lot of melted snow had flowed under the bridge. I wonder where all those young men and women have gone. We were from Tropical Borneo and Singapore and were feeling very BRRRR!

Now I am much older, I can't stand the cold. Here in the North Island of New Zealand, we have to drive 4 hours to the mt Ruepehu. I remember when I took my kids skiing, and I just walked.
March 15: I Remember When... Have fun with it.
