How do you know you are in the middle of winter?

Now, it's very easy to know if you are actually in winter or not. Besides the obvious where you feel the cold, harsh wind blowing at your face when you're in the street, or from the thermometer, there are other ways as well. In case you are so oblivious to your surrounding, there are two other ways to know if you're right in the middle of winter. First, look at the trees!! As you can see in the picture, all the leaves are gone. The leaves goes from green, to orange, to yellow... and you must have thought that they just fall from the tree after they turn yellow? Wrong! They will only fall when a strong winter wind blows, and thereafter you can see the whole ground turned yellowed with leaves. Ok, in case you stay at home all day throughout the week and months, and no contact with the outside world... the second way to know you are in the middle of winter is to open your tap! Try washing ur rice using normal tap water (not hot water), and soon you will find your hand in immerse pain from the cold tap water - analogous to using your hand to hold on to a couple of ice cubes!

There you have it, the solution to know if you are in the middle of a winter!
