We're in North America! It's cold and frosty. Winter! The famous writer Stephen Leacock once said that life in this country consisted of preparing for winter, enduring winter and recovering from winter. I'm sure he was right. Houses and cars are adapted for winter. There are indoor and underground centers in cities. When it's cold outside you can go to the shops, see a film or have a meal without going outside.
There is a lot of snow here now. Some parts of the country are cut off. You can only get there by air and dog sled.
We were told that in summer it could be surprisingly hot: +35 °C. I can't believe it. I wish I could come here in the summer.
Dear Alice and Mark,
The weather can change very quickly here.. It was Sunday yesterday and I went for a walk in the park. In the morning the weather was wonderful. It was warm and sunny. Half an hour later the weather started to change. It became cool and cloudy. A cold wind began to blow. Soon the rain started. You'll be surprised, but I didn't have either an umbrella or a raincoat. So, I got wet and cold very soon. I caught a bus which took me to the hotel. But when I arrived, the sun began to shine brightly again.
Thank goodness that our weather isn't so changeable.
