Around here it's all about the recent stormy blizzardy freezing snow squalling icy roads drifting snow and zero visibility. Nothin' else.
With that said I consider myself fortunate because in east London we received (like it's a gift) about half of what they were blasted with in west London. Go figure.
Even so, half as much was about 10 times as much as I wanted, which was nothin'.
Once you get past the "oh look honey, isn't it pretty? It's like a winter wonderland...." then you procrastinate about 8 hours til it's getting dark then you put on all the clothing you can find which in this train wreck of a house isn't much, then you take the broom and slog out to your truck, or in this case, my truck and you get to it.
There's Dougie, under his nice warm blanket of snow, ain't it purty??
Yup, no little "dusting" of snow just to get us used to it, no, Mother Nature let 'er rip bigtime, with snow forecast every day this week just for fun!
I guess it's a little too much to ask for one more patio day, candles, wine, conversation, bbq....hah!
Le sigh...well, at least we get to really talk about the weather now...
