So the kids are stuck at home due to a blizzard that has brought everything to a halt out East.
Ever try to explain snow to a Mexican, or anyone else for that matter, who has never seen it? Doesn’t work, believe me.
Nieve y mucho viento (snow and much wind) just does not describe a blizzard even when I raise my hand to the 3, 4, or 5 foot level to indicate how high. They will whistle or cluck their tongues but they really cannot grasp the concept.
Pictures of snow on the volcano are about as close as most people come to the real thing.
Stay safe and warm everyone.
