Robert's blog Winter Vacation Memories☆
Hello everyone! This is Robert from AEON
Yurakucho School. Winter is almost here again,
which means it is starting to get colder and colder.
While it doesn't snow very often in Tokyo,
in my hometown, Boston, it usually snows from
December until March or April! Many people in
my hometown have a love-hate relationship with
snow. It is beautiful and fun for kids to play in,
but it is a hassle to remove from the street or
sidewalk, and it can make driving very dangerous.
For me, I am happy to live in a place where we
don't need to worry about shoveling snow.
Here are some different types of snow
we have in the U.S.
Powder Snow: This is soft and light snow
that is easy to shovel. It is perfect for skiing
Wet Snow: This snow is very wet and heavy.
It is difficult to shovel and can become hard
and icy. It isn't as good for skiing but is perfect
for building a snowman.
Sleet: This is a mixture of rain,
snow and ice. It is very slippery!
Freezing Rain: This is rain that is partially frozen
and may turn into ice when it lands on the ground.
It can cause many problems such as power outages.
Do you like winter weather?
Does it snow a lot in your hometown?
Please let me know when you see me at AEON!
