Photos from Hangzhou

We are in the middle of another winter snowstorm with 5 to 7 inches of snow forecasted from this afternoon till tomorrow morning.

Thanks to my neighbor Dave. He has already removed the snow in my driveway and sidewalk with his blower before dinner today. I feel very blessed to have Dave and Tracy living across the street from me. They are so nice and helpful. I hope there will not be too much snow accumulation over night.

My son’s math league practice after school was canceled due to the snowstorm. His coach also canceled the basketball practice in the evening. I felt relieved that we could relax in our comfort at home.

I took time to look through some photos taken during our summer travel in China and uploaded some photos from Hangzhou.

Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang province.  The West Lake (Xī Hú, 西湖) in Hangzhou is famous for its beautiful natural scenery.

There is a popular saying in China: “Above there is heaven, below there are Hangzhou and Suzhou.” Suzhou is my home town. Both cities are well known for their “heavenly” beauty.

We visited the West Lake on June 8, 2010. It was a chilly, cloudy and rainy day. But it was still beautiful to walk around the Lake, take a boat ride on the Lake, and listen to music from the music water fountain.  

On this cold snowy night, it’s nice to look at those photos and relive the wonderful time we had in China. Thinking about the hot summer and natural beauty makes this cold night go faster. 

I posted some photos on my Facebook account.
