WATCH: Elderly woman's joy at seeing snow in a 'long time'

A 96-YEAR-OLD woman has proven she is still young at heart after transforming into a giddy schoolgirl when experiencing her first snowfall in a "long, long, long time".

Washington resident Armando Trull started filming his mother after taking in the splendour of a winter wonderland following her move from Miami in the US.

"I feel happy, so happy," she says in the footage. "I have to say thanks God, for giving me the opportunity to watch something that I love and I yearn very much.

"Thank, thank, thank you God!"

She even manages to engage in a snowball fight with a squeal of delight.
