SNOW! SNOW!! SNOW!!!

It's been snowing like crazy out here...and for some reason, anytime it snows, I have an intense urge for all things Nigerian. I have been dreaming of pounded yam, and recently I went really out of my way just cos I needed pepper so badly.I wonder if its because snow and snow storms remind me so much of home? You know, the fact that I am really not part of the snow culture? The funny part is I really do not mind the snow and the cold. I think its beautiful when I have the right clothing.

However, I can not find the box with my winter stuff...so I do not have the right winter boots for such extreme winter conditions. Meanwhile, no buses are coming up here cos of the conditions so I have been treking...and like I said, seems I can't trek in the snow without listening to Nigerian Music. My usual snow treking music is Oliver de coque but I recently heard Ikechukwu's "now is the time" and I really like it!

I miss my Daddy so much...I am sure he sees me looking like a mad woman with snow up to her knees while listening to Oliver De Coque and says..."now that, is my daughter"...I think he sees me...and misses me too.

Perhaps you get nostalgic because there could never be snow in Nigeria?
