   My second visit to the USA(7)—— Idling about street corners

           It was the 11th snow in Chicago since I came to the United States. I was woken by a burst of rumble. What was happening?I wondered. I looked out through the window. It was snowing heavily outside. A vehicle was shoveling the snow on the road in the neighborhood where my son lived. I darted a glance of the clock beside the bed, it was about four in the morning.

  When I got up, the snow had stopped. The sun was shining brightly. The sky was a cloudless blue. I thought it might be warm in the open air. Why not going for a stroll? After lunch, I walked out of the home. How cold it was outside! I felt at least 10 degrees Celsius below zero.(Usually Fahrenheit is used in the US) I walked along the street nearby, on which there wasn’t anybody else on foot but me. The snow on the lanes had been shoveled, where some crystalline salt could be seen here and there. It was said that the salt was used to help melting snow. Although the snow on the lanes was moved, the snow at the both sides of the road was five or six inches deep. I wandered about the street for less than an hour, then I returned home. If only the weather had not been too cold!

 

这是我来美国后芝加哥下的第11场雪了。我被一阵阵的隆隆声惊醒,怎么回事?我往窗外望去,是一辆铲雪车正在我儿子家周围的路上铲雪。我看了一眼床头的表,大约是凌晨4点钟。

起床后雪已经停了。阳光明媚、蓝天如洗。我想天气可能暖和了,何不出去走走呢?吃过午饭,我走出了家门。外面好冷啊!我感觉至少零下10摄氏度 (美国习惯用华氏温度,我不习惯)。我行走在附近的马路上,除了我以外街上没有一个走路的人。汽车行驶的车道上的雪已被除净,仍依稀可见撒落在马路上的粗大的盐粒,据说撒盐有助于化雪。尽管车道上的雪已被铲除,可路两边的积雪厚度达五、六英寸。我在街上逛荡了不到1小时,冻得实在受不了了,赶紧回家了。要是天气没有这么冷该多好啊!
