You've had it too soft for too long Longboard...time to come down from that estate at the top of the dale and shiver in the cold with the rest of us!

If only one could prevent precipitation. 

The damp is a blighter.

The cold damp is a divil down here.

They just announced on the radio we could get 'clipped' tomorrow.  This is an official snow term over here and means..well you know what it means:

However beginning later on Monday, an approaching Alberta Clipper will spread an area of snow

That is unreal 😳

Where I live we get way more snow than Buffalo...you never hear about it though since we have a very low population density...sitting looking out the window right now and its coming down about twice as heavy in the picture...with way more on the ground.

Thats right...

Snowing again!

I took this pic in July 2005 at a golf course near Calgary. Hail and snow. In July.

Only thing missing in that picture is me in my kayak or canoe listening to Oliver Daldry sing After Dark on the ipod.  Good Shot CKN!

I am sure you are all greatly concerned by my status.  You will all be greatly relieved to know there is a huge infastructure for snow removal here in Copenhagen, but as yet no snow has settled.

I hope you can all now sleep soundly.

It can stay steady in gusts up to 20mph, and flies in winds a little stronger.  Its not advisable to fly in a storm if you want it back!

As long as it has GPS lock, its remarkably steady.

starting to be concerned a little for the pensioners and less well off who have not been able to afford to heat their homes during the recent mild winters, we are not even in to the middle of dec and  its been a bitterly cold start to the season

We're also expecting a rapid rise in domestic fuel prices given the recent oil price rises tagged onto today's gas pipeline explosion in Austria that's caused shock rises already.

Round here, I know a lot of parents of special needs kids who literally have no money and have to make those decisions about whether to eat or whether to pay the bills.

Some of them are going to suffer if it doesn't warm up. This is the first time since moving to the Sunshine Coast that it's genuinely felt as cold as it did growing up in 'the north'.

Low level blizzard out there right now...once it blows itself out in a couple of days I'm going to have to shovel off the roofs before they collapse...was just out there and the windchill feels about -20...still not too bad but could be pretty cold tonight.

I hear that a good thing for keeping your roof clear of snow is a cannabis farm in your loft...
