To me it looks like a screen shot from "the day after tomorrow" movie
Astonishing! Thanks for posting that, Drwibble.
I made made one for you! It's rad... or should I say it was the night the snow came... my son and I made the biggest snowman EVER! PERFECT.. almost had a hernia getting the body piece up! hahahaahahahaa!! Next morning 3 days ago til now all ICE!!
Is it true it was minus twenty celsius in London today. My mother said this, but I rarely believe her (that was a joke...! Really...)
Yup. I live here and NEVER watch the news We recieved this storm a couple of days ago, with a few flurries in between and schools are shut.. though all other business in our liitle nook is swell.
It has been way cool to explore the beaches.. and see all wee ice burgs washing up!!
The baby burgs. I'd like to see that. Beats looking out the window at the blinkin' SNOW!!!!!
I managed to dig and drive my car out of 5inches earlier, Ireland seems like it missed a lot lol
First time in like 6o years I think they said it was like this before over there.
Good god, it's everywhere, the snow has infected our lands!!!
sounds like lots a fun going on in this thread, did you give the snowman a scarf i*n*v*i*c*t*u*s
Great picture doc, it's pretty scary...Totally with you on the 'day after tomorrow' fears! It's crazy, I live on the western coast of Scotland and the snow here is only tweo inches deep - but we are right next to the sea and never, ever, ever get snow here that lies...they say there's too much salt in the air.
I went to my home town recently in central scotland. Normally it's a two hour journey but just before christmas there it took eight and a half hours. Three hours stuck on a train and three stuck on a back road in the middle of nowhere but only two miles from home. There were fourteen accidents just ahead of us and (can you believe this) the council has cancelled the gritter trucks in our area because of budget cuts and they hadn't salted any roads. They were coming out only in emergencies.
Ironic don't you think that we have a cold climate and yet anything more than two inches of snow makes the entire country grind to a halt.
Still; everybody loves the snow!
I just know that some Canadian is gonna stroll in and say five inches of snow is a light dusting. haha!
I'm not even Canadian and let me tell you, five inches is a light dusting!!!!
I remember travelling to the south one time in the winter in my car, and they got just an itty bitty bit of snow, and you would've thought the Martians had landed. It was a state of emergency and cars backed up on the highway for miles and miles. We from the frozen North couldn't really see what the problem was. To us it was nothing...to them, it was a freakin' horrorshow. Weird.
I think the city I live in actually broke the WORLD record for most snow accumulations in one winter a few years ago. Presumably the problem in (southern) England is that municipalities don't invest in snow-clearing equipment, so when they get any, it's nearly impossible to drive (that and a lack of appropriate tires/tyres, depending how you wanted to spell that... )
(just realized you're from the northern US, not the north of Britain.... either way, my comment is the same...)
yeah.. the looks, er looked great! damn batteries, had to recharge from the holiday festives .. too bad snowmen don't last too long, eh?
LOLOL I think I brought the snow to the UK with me , from the heart of the Rockies.. We could have 'Feet' O snow and still get around ( typically with the powder flu) since we wanted to ski versus be at work LOLOL... that is why I am so laughing here in wee Wales.. though, hey kids love it.. nearly a month off of school for christmas holiday.. I do so love my new world... sigh

Well, this doesn't happen everyday. I figured folks would be interested.https://mars.nasa.gov/insight/timeline/ … ch-online/There are several to choose from, but I'm guessing the Youtube NASA feed will be the most reliable.(Monday, November 26, 2018)

Last Friday we had several inches of snow after a few really cold days (temps in the teens). I was able to easily drive to work in it. Today was a different story. We had freezing rain and ice hit just before I left to go to work. 90% of my journey to work is on the...

Hi, all,I'm posting this to share that I recently shelled out $1,600 for a photo I didn't have copyright to use. Let me explain so that this never happens to you.Several years ago, I grabbed a picture off Pinterest and used it on my private blog with a post. Last year, I got a series of letters...

When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added or deleted.It's very frustrating. Yesterday I was told my hub on Zeus, the...

The picture showing Queen Elizabeth and Michelle Obama with their arms around each other is ubiquitous on the web. I have a blog paralleling President Obama's First 100 Days in Office and our 100 days of being laid off back in 2009 that I'm making into an ebook. In one of the postings, I used...

Hi I spent an hour researching online but no one seems to have the answer. On other sites I've been able to post my articles via URL on my Facebook FAN page with the picture, text popping up, but not HUB articles. No problem posting to my FB profile. But with my fan page it comes up with just...
