Winter is my favorite time of the year in Korea; especially when it snows. Having lived in Korea since 1990, I have seen my share of snow in Seoul, Daejeon, and my first winter wonderland at Mt. Sorak in 1991. December was the snowiest month I have experienced in Daejeon as well as Korea all [...]
Or should I say, cold ducks? On one of the coldest days of the new year, and one of the coldest days I have felt in Korea in a very long time, these ducks in a stream not far from SolBridge are oblivious to the cold.
The New Year has picked up where the old year left off: more snow. By far, this the most snow at one time in the past three attempts by Mother Nature to blanket Daejeon with the white stuff. I’m guessing around 4-5 inches, maybe more. It’s not going to last. By noon, the sun [...]

Another snowy Friday in Daejeon. That makes three this month. In all the years I have lived and worked in Korea, this has been the snowiest December of them all. Love it!

Look closely, you’ll also see his cane and an industrial-strength chain to make sure no one steals his Lespo.
It’s been wicked cold in Daejeon for the past three days; the coldest December that I can remember in a long time. Most of the streets in my neighborhood are still sheets of corrugated ice and snow. There won’t be any city department crews sprinkling salt on these streets. Some folks have taken to spreading [...]
