It's snowing and I am getting almost no work done and grinning like a fool. My eyes keep darting to the window to make sure it hasn't stopped yet. I am itching for enough snow to build a snowman and might just get it today! I keep jumping around like a small child who has had school cancelled every time I get up to make a cup of coffee and am even starting to warm up (was cold when I got out of bed this morning). I LOVE SNOW!
That looks very much like our back garden! I just got back from a walk around the neighborhood and down to the shops. Got a few bits for ourselves and a neighbor who gave hubby brandy!
I didn't have my camera tho The batteries were dead and I didn't put them on charge early enough but I suspect I can get great pics tommorow just as easy and maybe even do my own snowman up at the park Had a snowball fight too!
I really love the snow! People are so friendly and aware We took our yak trax with us and put them on after we finished our shopping and everyone was looking at us putting them on. I wish I could add my affiliate ID to my verbal patter! I probably sold a few for someone They are really brilliant for the slippery bits in the road and such. I actually wrote a hub about them (shameless self promotion ) that have already sold
This weather can stay for a little while as far as I am concerned!
That is the one thing I miss most being away from the UK! I love snow too - even though when I was a taxi driver it inevitably meant breakdowns, bumps and quite often the inability to work which when you are self-employed is disastrous. The cold isn't a big issue when you are in a heated car or even better a heated house, looking out on a winter wonderland!
As I brush off the snow from Kirsten's well aimed snowball....
It has stopped snowing here for the moment, but central Watford is gridlocked with traffic. Motorists don't seem to get that if they are having trouble on the roads in a town centre it is going to be a lot worse back home, so probably best to get there while they can! Both Heathrow and Gatwick are closed, so as usual the UK is grinding to a halt!
Do you ever notice that even when snow and ice is forecast well in advance, the excuse the councils give for not getting the gritting lorries/snow-ploughs out in time is invariable "we didn't expect it"!
We have the news on and again its "Frozen Britain" LOL One announcment was that there were jack knifed lorries everywhere, so ran to the window to see one I didn't hear the part about it all being on one road and I thought the presenter could probably apply for a job with Fox
I really don't get the whining, the snow is pretty and fun and we knew this was coming for a while now. We knew it would be back when the last lot was melting.
Gonna have to go to the shops soon and you know what, I am looking forward to it! Going to have a snowball fight
English English and US English! Another example of me going native, I use sledging! And don't use the word fanny either! (not after what happened the one and only time I said that word in this country!)
Stuck inside and no windows! Not good mojo, gonna have to help you envision it
Close your eyes and imagine snow ladden trees glinting with the light of the street lamps so it all glows.... *Bends over and packs together a nice snow ball and throws it to a perfect hit* SNOWBALL!!!! o´¯`❄. ¸ (░) ´*。 ✲
Every year my fellow Pennsylvanians forget how to drive in snow. We had up to 16 inches last year, and we muddled through. Thursday night we got a dusting and a 20minute drive took me 2hrs w/ accidents all over the place.
kirstenblog, I'm with you. I love the snow!!! and I'm so excited that we have already gotten a bunch. Not as much as Alaska or Canada or Minnesota, but a decent amount and a number of different snowfalls too.
I saw that about 800 airline flights in western Europe had been cancelled because of the snow. Not fun for the travelers, but a lot less un-fun than a plane crash.
And hey, Denise and jenniferain, don't be snide about the places that only get a few inches! Of course, it's a big deal to those places when it's so comparatively rare. Wouldn't you make a big deal, if Alaska had a heat wave of 100+ degrees (F.)?
I remember when Pres. Obama had recently been inaugurated and scoffed at the difficulty the people in DC had because of a snowstorm. Well, of course they won't be as prepared for it as Chicago was/is! What should anyone expect in a subtropical climate?
