As all of us must be earing, there's a serious sequence of snow storms in south and southeast of china...but fortunately we just had some days of snow in beijing (i'll post something about it later).
But in my 100th post i will like to express my many thanks to this great country who received me so well and which i already feel myself a part of it!
I specially wish a Happy Chinese New Year for those who are suffering with the weather (having difficulties to arrive to their hometowns to meet their family for this important festivities, with no electricity, no eat, no water...)! I really hope your difficulties would be past on as fast as possible and that all of you may take a pleasant Spring Festival with your beloved ones!
I hope new like this one will end popping up now!
Although the snowfall has been described as the worst here in 50 years, it has been nothing like the deep cover that blankets parts of New England or the upper Midwest in many winters.
But its crippling effect seems to have been mostly because of surprise. The storm knocked out electricity and water supplies, threatened the coal supply that fuels the country’s power plants and stranded millions of Chinese on the eve of the year’s most important holiday.
Many of the worst effects have been in parts of east-central and southern China, which are largely unaccustomed to serious snowfall.
