Last night on my walk home from a fabulous night out with friends, the snow started to shower down again. This morning when I woke up, it was still snowing and in total we got around 6 inches! After filling my stomach with a traditional Scottish breakfast two of my friends and I bundled up in our snow gear and headed out to play in the snow! We climbed up Arthur's Seat and every direction we looked were people enjoying the snow and sledding down the hillsides. It was great!
Karate Kid Style!
I really need to invest in a good sled!
Rad and Kristin even had some extreme snow ball fights which I had the privilege of documenting. Even though Rad towers over my friend Kristin, being from Buffalo she was able to sneak in some good snow ball shots!
Still friends in the end!
Last weekend at Firbush I spent the day hiking up a mountain. So, we decided to head to one of the peaks on Arthur's seat. The views made the hike worth wile!
As the sun was setting the fog started rolling in over the city. The views were beautiful and unfortunately my camera does not do the sights justice!
After returning from our 3 hour hike in the snow, I ran into my good friend Nik who was stuck with his car in a parking lot. Nik is from Edinburgh and has never attempted to drive in the snow. Thanks to my mom I learned to drive in the snow when I was younger. So I hopped in the car and helped Nik get out of the parking lot. Then we went for a ride around the city. I explained to him the concept of "doing doughnuts" in a parking lot. He loved it!
Nik stuck in his car:(
Tonight I am having some friends over for an Italian dinner and movie. There is nothing better than some good comfort food after a day playing in the snow. Forecast for the week: Snow, snow, and more snow! Until next time, I will see you on the internet.
