snow, real snow!

i do live in canada! ha!

the forecast said today would have snow, but i don't think any of us believed them anymore! the kids went to school, but got sent home early. it looks like we might have enough snow soon to actually play in!

I am trying very, very hard to not be jealous of you ... in 60+ degree weather in my sandals. It's just not right.

snow...the closest thing we got to snow was a very short snow squall about two weeks ago. you'd no sooner notice it and think 'wow,it's snow, it really is winter!' than it was gone.

enjoy. i just loved those snow days as a kid :-)

I live in England - we do not get "snow" merely "divine dandruff" - I want snow, and not just the light dusting, I want "phump!" snow the snow that seals you in, and makes you wonder if there is enough food in the pantry . . .for a week, or two. . .or maybe even longer.

The last such wonderful experience I had was when I lived in DC in . . .'95 I think, . . . it began in the early afternoon, fat, pregnant flakes . . . within an hour everything (including my shop) was shutting and people were scurrying home. By nightfall you could not see the tyres on the car, and by morning . . . you could not see the car!

It was wonderful!

I miss snow. I live in England.

ha alexis - i too could use a couple of good weeks squirreled away from the world packed in by snow, but i think it might grow old more quickly than i dream it would.

sorry for the dandruff snow you get over the pond. maybe the weird weather global warming is causing will send you a real live blizzard!
