Snowy Snow

The day we arrived in the States it was already snow in New Jersey. A snow strom hit this area around a week before we arrive. Orang baru sampai, excited la tengok snow. Putih je sana sini. Jalan licin. Sejuk. As what most people would say la, "Best la dapat main snow".

Day after day, winter and snow started to get annoying. Dengan temperature around 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit, it really freezing. We know some places elsewhere lagi sejuk, but still winter and snowing is not as wonderful as it imagine. Nak keluar rumah you have to put on proper warm clothings plus head gear. Minimum 3-4 layer baju. Bila jalan kat luar, dengan running nose lagi. Tambah lak bila ada strong wind. It really makes walking difficult. Kalau tak ada reasons, memang la malas nak keluar rumah.

Dalam rumah pun kena pakai sweat shirts jugak to keep ourselves warm. Memang la dalam rumah ada heater to keep us warm. Tapi heater ni pulak lain pulak ceritanya. It runs on gassoline / oil. Our tank can store up to 275 gallons. We subscribe for automatic filling. Bila tank jadi half full, the oil company datang rumah refill. The price of the oil dah la ikut current market. Now its around $3.25 per gallon. Just imagine la half tank around 180 gallons kali dgn $3.25 per gallon. Berapa banyak nak kena bayar utk isi minyak tu. Last time was around end of January, kami punya charges around $472. Tu pun tahan around 4 weeks plus. Harap boleh la tahan sampai habis winter. Kalau tak miskin kami dibuatnya dok bayar minyak untuk heater ni. Dah la utilities pun macam-macam. Dengan gas, electricity, internet and mobile phones. Kena la pandai jimat-jimat.

Kalau datang short visit seronok la layan snow. Tapi to live through out the winter season, really an experience la. Harap cepat la winter ni habis. Can't wait for the blooming flowers during coming spring. West Haven and New Haven ni dah la banyak park, sure best during spring nanti. We'll give an updates during spring later. Parks and seasides. Really looking forward for spring to come.

Yeah,

I pun tak sabar spring to start.
Nak jogging, start a healthy life and all, but with the weather outside, sapa lah brani kluar. Sejuk tak ingat, takut jogging2, demam lak. Dah lah mahal nak bayar heating, demam kena jumpa Dr. lagi mahal. Keep your kid warm, Clinic kat sini mahal babe.

Joey,

Kitorang memang la tak sabar nak tunggu spring. As you said in your blog, winter / snow ni best for the 1st six hours je. Lepas tu dah rasa menyampah. Anyway, anak kami kebal sejuk. Tapi still la kena jaga jugak. As you said heat mahal, medical mahal.

Hope spring will come soon...
