Lots of Snow here, only drive if you have to sort of weather and then we get more on Sunday too.Very dangerous icy roads now.

Next time close your sun roof and you won't get any snow in your car.

I had some in my car this morning, but then it was a wonderful sunny (freezing) day.
Sunday will be the big snowy day :D

And what counts as snowy in your part of the world?  :)

It’s a lot of snow if you can build a snowman here.

I remember a few years ago, it snowed a little bit in London and the surrounding areas. Maybe an inch or so. And it damn near paralysed the country. It made the news here in Iceland a few days in a row, and caused great mirth: A first-world country overwhelmed by an irrelevant amount of snow,  :)

I find it funny because I compare it with Switzerland ;D
And it was really just a little bit, a flurry lightly covering the car.

I agree with Eclipse: if you can build a snowman, it's a lot (for here)!

It was even snowing on the road down to Paris. Didn't expect to see ought this far south.

The night sky always amazes me when you get away from the light pollution of cities and you can see the band of Milky Way spread across the sky.

Peat, I was very into Vampire the Masquerade back in the day, going to national events and whatnot.

I never got into the face to face scene, but I loved me some VtM pbf. WtA was always my go to though.

That said, if I ever got the exact right group, I'd love to run a Black Hand campaign. Lasombra were always my favourite clan. In fact, hmm... *reaches for the idea vaults document*

My commuting bike has an electrical fault at the moment so am commuting on my toy. We had 5 minutes of snow which froze, and the journey home was horrific. The other bike would not have had a problem this one was losing the back wheel on  every bend and some straights. Even a little snow can be a problem.

It's kind of how we experience snow in the south verses the North in the US. I've seen both. In the South, it's a little bit of snow but it covers up ice, making it extremely difficult to drive. In the north, it's fluffier so it only gets super dangerous when it piles up.

The snow is still here! A plane landed in Birmingham airport and passengers had to wait 7 hours to get off the plane

Snow! Oh no, anything but snow! How could a Land possibly deal with Ice, and snow?

It’s magical fairy dust! I’m sure I saw some snowmen flying above my house when I wasn’t looking.

I like the cold, but I hate having to scrape my windscreen every morning >:(

At least I'm off work tomorrow, and then the temperature is supposed to increase a bit...

So I went on my nature experience. Unfortunately the trails were too close to traffic, and there were people. Messes up the whole thing for me. I want to find a patch of land far away from civilization that hardly anyone knows about, and stay there a while. I don't know how I'm going to find that though...
