There’s something so magical about snow. The first flakes that fall before a rush of white that envelopes everything around you. The layers of clothing that keep you warm as you sit by the window and take in the white surroundings. The hot mug of coffee, which tastes even better during this time, is your best friend as the snow settles and makes you snuggle under the blankets. But, that’s for tourists. For the locals, snowfall or not, life carries on as usual.
