A Trip to Snow Mountains

When my family was living in Sydney, we used to go to a place called Snow Mountain because Sydney never has snow in winter.  The weather can get extremely cold and the temperature could go as minus 5 degree celcius, but it’s never snowing.  That was the reason why we liked going to Snow Mountains.  We went with a group of foreign students from different parts of the world.

We went by bus to Canberra and then we went up to the mountain.  Believe me, you need to be an expert driver because the road was rough and wet.  We had to go very slowly and cautiously.  Luckily, our driver was a real professional.  He did a great job taking us to the mountains, but I saw many good cars sliding off the roads.  The police were made very busy by those accidents, but they seemed to have anticipated the situations.  They had all kinds of equipments to help the poor cars.

When we reached the resort area, a nice warm meal was waiting in a nice and warm dining room.  It was a relief.  Then, we had to hire “Snow Mountains gear” like caps, scarves, thick jackets and snow boots.  We simply had to do that or else we would have been freezing to death.  I felt really big and fat in that outfit and I had to learn how to walk in snow.

The most exciting part was the toboggan ride.  Toboggan is basically a fiberglass board designed to slide down the snowy slopes.  So, I climbed up the hill.  It turned out that my steering ropes weren’t tied on correctly, so I could not control my Toboggan properly.  I slide down very fast without being able to control where I was going.  I ended up plugging into a freezing cold creek.

      A.  To tell how to go to Snow Mountains.

      B.  To describe Snow Mountains in Sydney.

      B.  A great and professional job of the writer.

      C.  The situations of the road to the mountains.

      D.  The busy work of the police at the mountains.

  1. Why should the driver be professional in driving on the Snow Mountains?

      A.  Sydney never has snow in winter.

      B.  The road was very dangerous.

      C.  The mountain was very cold.

      D.  The driver had a hard job.

  1. What made the writer feel interested in visiting Snow Mountains in Sydney?

If Superman is basically a stronger, more flight-enable version of a regular man, then a supercell is basically a stronger, more tornado-enabled version of a regular storm cell.  This is because – much like tornadoes – supercells have the tendency to spin around a lot, but also – and more importantly- because supercells can actually create tornadoes.  If you remember one thing after reading this article, let it be this: stay away from things that can do that.

In case it needed to be mentioned, supercells are the most dangerous of the four strom types, in addition to being the scariest to look at.  Luckily, they’re also the rarest and tend to be confined to the central United States during the springtime.  If you ever happen to come across one, whenever you are, just remember the advice you got previously, move in the other direction.
