SnowWatch!

Post by merry »

OK we have members to whom snow is no surprise or an infrequent visitor, but I live in the south(ish) of England, and it's rare to get snow, sometimes entire years go by with none that settles.

It was before 8 am when I woke up today and the world was very silent..... I knew!

I always feel excited when I see snow, even now, when it doesn't mean 'a day off school' and causes a few issues for us (horses! five miles away! :eek) but still, my first thought was.... YIPPEE!!!!

This is such a lovely view, Merry!! Do enjoy it while you can! Does it not fit perfectly with your christmas decorations? 😍

We have about 2mms of snow in Vienna right now and the sun is out, so it will likely be gone in about two hours. 😉

We have had frost but no snow, apart from a few flurries this morning that didn't settle. Or maybe they did but were indistinguishable from the frost already there. During the last few days it hasn't been warm enough to melt all the frost.

I went to Morrisons today, and it was very quiet when I arrived during browsing time. By the time I had paid for everything - not much to buy this time! - people were starting to arrive and the car park was noticeably busier than half an hour earlier. I was pleased I had gone in early. It was OK driving there, the roads were not icy or anything horrid like that. I hope the Girls aren't finding driving up to Scotland too difficult.
Like the late Chaircat Midge, I am not always right.

About an inch fell last night in ecclesland. I took one snow shot with the phone while out on my walk and just checked it and it has awful camera shake so I deleted it. I'm glad Merry stepped in as I don't much like the idea of going out in it again. Temperature is hovering around 0C. :snowing

I had the snow yesterday just enough you could make footprints but not so much it got in ones boots.
It's gone today except for a few stubborn bits that always stay on bits of grass etc.

I hope merry managed to trudge the five miles to feed the horrible horses without the snow got in her boots.

WD Juliet for braving the weather AND building a snowman.

This themed cartoon made me chuckle.

No snow and hardly any frost here. Glasgow had a brief flurry yesterday for 20mins but didn’t settle. Nothing in Edinburgh today.

'Caught picking his nose' - that was so funny, Eccs! :rofl

Well we have to go OUT tomorrow (to Cheltenham 10 miles away) so the roads better be clear at least...

You'll probably pay for it later, Patience :D :snowing

We decided not to risk going down to Cheltenham today after all, but instead Juliet and I went to Broadway to get stamps and post cards (ALL DONE NOW!) and found it very Christmassy indeed!

Tom - the tall tree on the Green is artificial - I checked :)

This is how look to me in my city Ogre. There's very much snow what's nothing usually. It's almost always like that, but like which year. Sometimes there are snow, sometimes not and are grey, gloomy and wet weather woth rain. I don't like it. This is much better and so Christmasy! :snowing :xmas

The red tree looks nice. There's been no new snow in my town but stubborn bits haven't melted so it must be freezing though I didn't think it was that cold out when I went to get a TV paper they are sold today. Nothing much on TV at Xmas again.

The postman has finally been to my house ts like being at work again and having to open all the post. I have all but one of the things I expected now. Still waiting for one thing which I asked for in August and wasn't sent them so maybe it hasn't been sent in December either and it isn't Mr posrmans fault. Letters are sent by UK mail these days so there aren't dated postmarks to tell when sent but guesses based on date on letters etc mean some are two weeks old .

I was hoping for more snow so I could take a photo. What I had was mostly brown by the morning.

Fossy, I'm in a town so my view is not unlike yours. I do think a nice blanket of snow makes it look special at least when it is fresh.

Furby, That made me realise I've not seen my postman (actually a woman) for a while now. Maybe she'd going to drop them down my chimney on the 24th
