Let it snow, let it snow...



If I were a romantic.... OK, I am but not when it comes to climate issues...but IF I had romantic notions about the weather, I might tell you that this morning, snow is falling like bugs from the sky and that it's cute to see parents pulling their kids to kindergarden on sledges. But it's not. It's dark, despite all the white stuff, it's wet, and I think its never going to stop snowing. 
My husband is going to arrive back from Stavanger tonight to find his car marooned behind a snow bank. Worse, if Mr Snow Plough man doesn't turn up today before 2 PM, because he's too busy clearing important roads and not our little lane, like yesterday, I might have to resort to a sledge myself for child transportation. Or even worse - a bus and my feet. Ba humbug.

But it's soooo fun with the sleigh - and you get to work on those gluteus maximus muscles!

Nah...just trying to make you feel better. Sympathies sista, sympathies.....

Mel - I'm going to tell him you said so, whenever I get to see him. Our 70-year old neighbour, who said that he has never seen so much snow come down so fast, kindly cleared the snow blocking my husband's car in with his snow machine - we don't have one as the snow plough normally comes and does the clearing for us. Not today!
Caroline - don't know about my bum muscles but I've certainly given my shoulders a good work-out clearing snow. Shame I can't go for my usual walks though because of it.

Hi Oslo

I'm a recent addition to the blogger world, partly due to Mel. Hope you don't mind the intrusion.

The pictures are really be-you-ti-ful. But, what's that they say - nice from far, but far fom nice??

Good Luck

Welcome Frank. No such thing as an intrusion around here:-)
Wait until I post pictures next week of the snow as it blackens and gets sludgy.

Gosh Maria, Nearly let your comment slip by without acknowledgment. Sorry! I think I'd like to be in Ibiza right now :-)
Jo - I guess if you don't have to battle with it everyday, snow can look OK
