Snow in Beijing

This past weekend we had the most snow I've ever seen in Beijing. It snowed a lot of the weekend. No salt trucks, no snow plows, and lots of people uncomfortably trying to drive not used to snow.


  1. Hi Shanna, I have enjoyed reading your blog about living in China the past few months, it has been very informative! Love the snowman with what it looks like a traffic cone.
    I have a question for you about the smog/ pollution you talked about a awhile ago. How has your family adjusted living with that issue? Air masks outside and air filters inside. Do you have to stay inside all the time ? We might be moving there next year and just want to be prepared.
    Again, keep up the great work on the blog!


    1. Hi Rebecca, thanks so much for your comment and questions.

      Pollution sucks. No other way around it. It affects our daily or almost daily life. We stay inside more. We are quite strict about the air, some families aren't, depends on your comfort level. Over 200, we wear air masks outside, over 100 my babies don't go outside, or only for short car trips to somewhere with purifiers. School was considered for air quality inside the school and activity space for inside recess. I hope this helps? Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    2. Oh and our air just hit the highest I think it has been in 2015 today, I blogged about it so check out the latest post.

  2. Love the photos! I get a glimpse of BJ from them!
