Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow


Recommended Posts


Already had first snow of the season here on the 'Swiss Riviera' - only above 1000 metres though.

It loks weird because they are still harvesting the grapes all this week, yet all the surrounding mountains are capped with snow.

Mmmmmm.. Eiswein!! :D

Swans are migrating South 3 weeks early.

I suggest you invest in jumpers.

Noticed the same here with the geese. Bulk of them have been and gone, and we're not into November yet.

At the wife's instruction, I turned all the radiators on in the house last night. Half of them had to be turned on with pliers pulling the pin on the valve as the valves are on their way out. She also got me to shut the rest of the window vents.

Ah well, we never did get that decent second half of the summer...

Got a snow shovel at a garden centre - B&Q don't stock them. I also got a bag of rock salt. It's being so cheerful that keeps me going :ph34r:

You're getting old. Have you stocked up on tins of soup and condensed milk?

You be careful with that snow shovel, now you've set an ambition to outlive me. I don't want to win just yet.

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.

I had to put a jumper on when I went outside.

You do not see me complaining.

You big girl.

Why didn't you just grow more chest hair, like a real man would?

Tinned soup! We can't afford luxuries like that.

Rather reminds me of a couple of winters ago, as I trudged through the snow to the club house at my rugby union club in Copenhagen. Despite it being a properly Danish club, a chap (whom I had not met before) at the club house started talking to me in English. I queried how he knew how I was English.

"It's snowing", he said "and you're wearing shorts."

Clever chap.

On the train to Glasgow this morning. Passing through the Lake District there was a cover of snow on the high fells. But when I reached the hills of southern Scotland there was a fair dusting of the stuff as low as track side.

We now have snow in Hull!

(Not settling yet though, boo!)

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Just been talking to our kid who reckoned it was a couple of inches deep in Cottingham.

I was a bit sceptical as it's just melting straight away here. Then again we're only a few hundred yards from the Humber. Makes a bit of difference to the ground temperature.

Old Faithful we never lose at Wembley

I worked in Cas for 10 years from 1981 to 1991 and never saw any significant snowfall there. I reckon the heat from Ferrybridge, Drax and Eggborough has something to do with that.
