A proper swiss winter

Through the whole of last winter it snowed for about 5 seconds in where we live in Vevey and then it melted immediately, which was a bit disappointing. Already this year we've had quite a lot of snow falling in Vevey and pretty much everywhere else in Switzerland!

The other night it was really coming down in our square where the Village Finlandais is set up, so of course I took some photos.

In Australia I would really resent cold weather since it just seems to limit what you can do, but in Switzerland it means snow; which really transforms the landscape making everything look quite spectacular and also creates a whole range of new activities to explore. Consequentially, I'm really excited about having what I consider to be a proper Swiss winter ahead of us!
