I will try harder…

It was a usual morning like we used to have. That morning Jan 15 2013 the snow is likely to be in Tsukuba, our recent home.
The snow that we’ve been waiting for since this winter started, is nothing but a cold and huge wind.
Actually the snow came the day before that even we played outside under that snow shower.
It was fun anyway, a fun that might not would never be seen in Indonesia, our homeland.

Minutes has passed, but the buss still out of nowhere to be seen.
Though it was a sunny day, still the temperature was quite cold.
And this is Tsukuba, where the wind blows with the
temperature more than snow falling in Sapporo I supposed.

Harvy starts to cranky, less patient, and remain asking where is the bus?
Untill he asked me to walk to school instead of keep waiting while the traffic-jam
