Just came back from sledging with my sister. Great fun, haven't been able to do that before, ever! In Somerset near Wells it's about 3inches of snow here.

Well my school stayed open so the first lesson today was outside to throw snowballs and try and make an igloo!!!! We now need 6" of snow overnight to have another go tomorrow!!!

We only had about 3" at most here IMO.

Well after several websites proving that getting cold doesn't give you a cold or flu She let the kids play in the snow.

Sometimes she takes a lot of convincing on silly things that are old wive's tales. I don't know wether it is her being a foreigner, being female, lack of apptitude or a combination of each. lol

Well its official, im stuck in the house all day. The annoying thing is, I live at the bottom of a cul-de-sac which is on a hill, which then opens out onto an A-road and then on to the M4, so the only thing stopping me getting to work is the 5 metre long hill to the top of the cul-de-sac.
I thought I'd sweep the snow off, but during the 5 minutes or so it took me to sweet to the top, the bottom was completely covered :rant:
Whats even more annoying is when I got up at 7am the sky was completely clear, no more than a light sprinkling of snow on the ground, but by the time I was dressed and ready to go about 7.45, it had completely clouded over, was snowing a blizzard and we'd probably had 1/2" to 1" of snow during that 45 minutes
Fortunately my boss has provided me with "homework" however, just incase this did happen, so I have a 4" thick Habitats Directive handbook to read through today :rant: :rant: :rant:
Can't even enjoy my bloody day off!

I might go out an do a spot of photography later tho...

Yup, had plenty here, the uni is officially closed for both Monday and Tuesday, but since when has that stopped us!

I got there about 8:30am yesterday and armed with my camera took loads of photos. :)

Am now waiting for all my batteries to recharge ready for this afternoon, I want to take photos of some of the handiwork going on in the area, there's igloos and everything :)

You wouldn't believe what people over there still think to be true! I just laugh at them and say "yeah whatever" lol

Good to see everyone having fun in the snow :)


Nice Photos Egmel :)

Snow - it's a wonderful thing. It means no work for me (my school has a wonderfully steep hill - not so good for my legs but great for days off!), sledging down mountains (that's why Wales is soooo great), and then sitting in front of the fire (to cure frostbite) and planning my next rescape. Does it get any better?

Finished work early yesterday!

I took this in the evening - my two girls building a snowman, after pelting their Dad with snowballs! ISO 12800 for the camera geeks.
