Re: It's snowing!

There's about 1 cm of snow outside this morning. Winter has finally arrived! Hurrah!

Re: It's snowing!

1 cm - lol. After the 30cm overnight the night before, another 30 last night- all light and fluffy - my kind of snow. Winter is definitely here - so going out for a bit more shoveling. Then come back to the log fire and a nice cuppa- lovely.

Re: It's snowing!

The kids are building a snow fort and the roads are covered with hardened snow. If it snows a bit more, they'll be able to open the local ski lift. I've got my fingers crossed.

A quarter hour ago, there was even a bit of sunshine, and the snow on the lawns at 2cms, but now it is snowing .... as a colleague used to say "they are propagating the snow"

Re: It's snowing!

Just spent 2 hours snow blowing and shoveling - now hot soup and a rest. A great and healthy way to keep fit About 60cm here and still snowing.

So you live in a theme park really, and all the snow is just an illusion created by the BBC
Don-t be silly, the BBC does never create any illusions!

Re: It's snowing!

Yes! We have actual snow, not a lot but snow! Tried out my new down filled coat today, snug as a bug in a rug! A couple of Glühwein later and I am officially looking forward to Christmas.

Re: It's snowing!

If anyone between Basel and Neuchatel sees two young people on loaded bicycles, one being very noticible because her four panniers are woven wicker ones, invite them in for a hot drink. This lovely French couple (Clemente and Emilie,) stayed at my place last night and are almost back home after cycling over 10,000km from Laos. They set off again this morning, despite the fact that it had just begun to snow here. :-)

Re: It's snowing!

I spent over one hour this morning digging my car out of the snow. I hope that the weather will remain relatively stable tomorrow, becuase I have to go to a garage to arrange for the damage caused by an idiot who ran in to me on Friday afternoon despite the fact that my car was stationary, to be repaired. Let me say it again, I HATE SNOW!

Re: It's snowing!

We finally got some that stuck last night. I think one of the penguins did some arctic black magic.

We're not quite up to your level but we've got about 10cm now and it's still snowing.
