This story contain many winter weather related words. Can you find
them? (*hint*: their color is red). Do you know what they mean?
You wake up one morning and find out that
Mr. Winter decided to come for
a visit. The temperatures are low and you are feeling kind of
chilly, which turns to a shivery feeling of
coldness when you get out of bed.
After dressing up in a sweater, leggings, wool socks and jeans, you
put on your boots and
take a look in the skies. The skies are covered with dark grey clouds,
and it seems like it will rain
In the afternoon you go out to the local grocery shop to buy some
food for dinner.
Half way home from the store you feel a droplet
of rain on your forehead. While you run for cover, the
drop turns into a sprinkle,
the light rain into a
drizzle, and the rain
into a downpour.
It seems like The Deluge from the bible
comes again upon us.
You finally arrive safe (but wet) to your house,
and start drying your clothes in front of the heating.
Vapor come out of your clothes as they dry out
and steams up the room.
You start preparing dinner and suddenly the sky shine with
lightning, followed by a wild roar of
thunder. A storm is
running wild outside, a real tempest!
A few hours pass, and the gale seems to
weaken, but it's still very cold. The
weatherman reports of a cold front and
forecasts heavy snow starting tonight.
You wake up late at night from your sleep. The wind is howling
outside and it's raining. The rain changes
to sleet and then icy
balls start falling against the windows...It's
You wake up to a white morning, A blanket of snow
covers the ground and your coat gets covered with
snowflakes when you pop outside. It's
absolutely freezing...just the time for
some hot chocolate....
The gentle snow of the morning turns into a
blizzard at evening. Cuddled up on the
sofa with a warm blanket you dream of summer.....
