It finally snowed for real here in southern Poland. When I was younger, we had snow for two months solid. But now, a week seems impressive.
Walking in the snow is an interesting experience, to say the least. When the snow cover is thick, but not too thick - somewhere between 20 and 50 cm - it can be considered dangerous. Everything is covered, so you can't really see what you're stepping on. There might be ice, rocks. A frozen puddle. A hole. But, the cover is not deep enough to protect you from these obstacles.
Oh how often, metaphorically, are we walking in snow? Barely seeing the road, not knowing about the dangers that may come? Blinded by all that white?
Gotta bring snowshoes next time.
