It's snowing here too.. well there's a tiny bit of pathetic sleet.

It won't be snowing in Reading though, not settling anyway, it never does. :(

Luckily it gets warmer every day here after the unseen polar temperatures of 2 and 3.

no, I've been waiting for this, I'm keeping mine!

Not even a ickle bit? :(

It's snowed about 7 or 8 times here today, and not settled at all. I don't hold out much hope...

alsieboo
21-02-2005, 17:15:20
not even the smallest flake.

It's slowed down now :( but still kinda settled!

You aren't in Reading though.

Tizzy

It settled enough for some snowball throwing earlier apparently

alsieboo
21-02-2005, 17:29:17
same here, but not on the road, or the pavement. Flakes are getting bigger now!

We had hail settling earlier, but then the sun came out, melted the hail, and then it snowed, and that didn't settle. :(

Venom

No. I have declared winter over!

Thank you...send the snow to the looney Brits please

Venom

Winter is indeed over. That damn ground hog can go fuck himself.

The 528 dam line has been looking good since last week. With that easterly it's gonna be tough to get much over our way before it fizzles out. It's codl enough that there should be some settling, certainly on the east coast, probably less likely once you get inland and urban.

I've just been looking through some of the other photos on that site. Portland looks really really nice and very European.

The exception that proves my rule. Once in like 10 years.

And it was like 1 inch and totally turned to ice and was rubbish for snowballs - so it doesn't count.

Not having been there, I can't venture a real opinion, but I've heard it many times. You encounter many European transplants here and they all seem pretty happy...happier than US Southerners or East Coasters who come here.
I think we are super liberal, very "green" and very into the outdoors and grassroots politics, etc.

I really can't think of anyplace else (even Seattle is too big to qualify) that matches us in size and demeanor both.
Vancouver B.C. is very similar in Canada....

If you ever wanted to live in the U.S. but still hold onto your soul...this might be the place.

Plus, we have SNOW! and ocean and desert all within equal driving distances...pretty cool.

SNOW! is only exciting 'cause we hardly ever have it. :)

Vancouver is about the same size as Seattle...

We don't get much here in the urban area, as we are in a similar latitude as the UK I think...but we have major elevation here. It snows in town probably every 3 years on the average.

Funkodrom
21-02-2005, 21:35:48
The UK is really far north, somewhere around Canada level but our climate is extremely mild. Much milder than it should be this far north.

Venom
21-02-2005, 21:38:17
And why is that?

The Bursar
21-02-2005, 21:39:04
We had radiators before Canada

Yah. Londn, for instance, is at ~51.5 north whereas Montreal is at 45.5 north.

All of Europe is much warmer than it ought to be.

Being warm rules

Venom
21-02-2005, 21:53:23
Yeah, like it's warm in England.

Funkodrom
21-02-2005, 21:54:23
Warm, mild, temperate whatever. It's not stupidly hot like it is there.

Venom
21-02-2005, 21:56:16
That's the price you pay for, you know, having sun shine.

Funkodrom
21-02-2005, 21:59:53
Having what?

Venom
21-02-2005, 22:02:39
Do a google search.

Had a few inches of snow last night.

After you learn about sunshine. I'll teach you about sunscreen. And something called tanning that doesn't deal with animal hides.

Snow never settles in areas of high radioactivity...:cute:

Which explains why there's nary a flake here.

Hinckley Point?

Provost Harrison

It didn't settle :(:( But they say it's going to be like this all week, so I can still jump up and down like the little kid I really am and get excited about a millimeter of snow.

I think 'puppy' would be a better way of describing my reaction yesterday lol.

Anyway, it SNOWED! again today. a bit. And no, it didn't settle again either. :(

Tizzy
22-02-2005, 15:39:49
I went walking in the SNOW! earlier :bounce:

alsieboo
22-02-2005, 15:41:03
how much snow do you have to walk in?

Tizzy
22-02-2005, 15:43:57
I meant walking in it while it was falling, it didn't settle here either :(

alsieboo
22-02-2005, 15:47:05
aww :( Did I say that we had a thin covering last night and it froze, so the roads in our village were all icy and nasty because they don't grit them.

Venom
22-02-2005, 15:48:08
It's all fun and games until the roads get fucked up and you can't go anywhere.
