Snow in south Brazil


By Aleyna


I know you all tired about seeing snow, but I though it would be funny to see some of our pictures of snow.
All these pictures can be found if you google “neve em porto alegre”…
although some of you wouldn’t understand portuguese :o)

The photos bellow are from Porto Alegre, where I have my office… 23 miles south from where I live

and this one is from Novo Hamburgo, where I live…

As you can see, is about 1 or 2 inches at all…. can’t really kill the tropical plants…

and they look good covered with snow…. :o)

This photo was took in Gramado a city 45miles up north, in the hills

Hi Arlene... I'm always ready for snow... lol

We had a few -4 and -5°C this last winter... have seen some -10ºC, and chilli!!!

I bought a Polyscias quilfpoylei (popular name here is Happyness Tree) suffering because of the cold, but it survived, and is sprouting now... :o)

I agree with you Aliwya, they look even better when the sun cross them creating a few little rainbows, almost as beautiful as the monlight crossing them... the view is amazing... :)

Porto Alegre" .... or neve em "Novo Hamburgo"
