Ice rain

My wife called me in the morning while I was working in the office. Finally I got something to do and I was excited. However, Coco was even more excited at work as she told me that it was raining ice. At first I thought she meant hail, but when I go out for lunch it was really a bunch of ice drops that falls down. Hails are usually white and is bigger, these are truely ice and is transparent. I am still trying to figure out how that is possible. Could it be that the temperature is low enough to freeze the raindrops to ice when it arrives to ground level? It doesn't seems likely since the temperature up there would be lower and it would just be snow instead. I am still clueless, but a song came to my mind. "Ice rain" by Andy Lau. 冷冷的冰雨在脸上胡乱的拍...... the winter has come.

冰雹落得快過頭,趕唔設一層層咁變大成小球狀,就喺落冰粒啦。
以前喺加拿大住時時都有落(有時喺夏天該燴)。天氣報告會分得好清,指明係落hail定喺ice pellets㗎。

佚名,
It isn't really too cold, -1.5 degree that day. For people like me who stays indoor all day, I don't really feel the chill :)

Eric,
I have planned for a trip to Iceland as well, but I just have to wait till my wife gets the permanent residence status before we can go. From what I know, it isn't that the hotel got cheaper in Iceland, it's just that their currency has dropped so much so it makes all expenses in Iceland look cheap to foreigner. Just imagine how it would be one day if it only takes 6 HKD for 1 GBP. This is pretty much the case in Iceland.

When do you plan to go?

行姐,
恭喜恭喜, 真高兴, 下次回香港有地方住了 :)

Laulong,
Spring in Norway doesn't come till April. Winter in Norway is quite long. I look forward to it though.

Today is quite warm. We have 8 degrees today and the sun is shining, too bad I am still sitting in the office.

行姐,

Laulong,
The financial winter will be here for awhile, let's pray for the best. I hear people have begin to lay off people in Norway as well. My ex-co worker got laid-off in her new job, luckily she found another one before her 2 weeks notice runs out.
