Home snow Brussels under the snow

Brussels under the snow

by Vincent

As most of you probably already know the winter 2009-2010 was one the coldest we have experienced in Europe in a very long time. Brussels was no exception to this and the initial sense of  fun and excitement of having snow stay for a few days slowly became irritating and in the end frankly outright depressing when had to deal with it non stop from December to March. This is partly why there was been no interest on my part in updating the blog for that period of time but now that’s all a thing of the past and I happily look back, knowing summer is approaching and post a few pictures of my last attempt in winter photography dating from December.

Salut O Brusselas enneigee,

Que mon Parc Maconnique sur Compas et sur neige,

O Blancheur exquise des Temps sereins,

Que ton manteau a Angles Droits en Blancheur Edelweiss

Te sied comme le Niveau de la Paix,

Sous ce Ciel Belge Bleu cristallin,

O Ciel Clair de Bonte intense,

Que ton Entree sur Tapis rouge,Annie,sur Papamobile te soit aussi enivrante que cette Neige du Silence,

Je souhaite aux Brusselairs et surtout a Monica de Nativitas:
