HAPPY SNOW DAY

Happy snow day to everyone here in England. I just thought it would be nice to share. Anyone got any great stories of the snowiest day in 30 years? I spent a few hours with mates making a ramp at the bottom of the slide at the nearest kids' park and going down it in a toboggan

Sounds like a day at work for me. Turn up, play with my balls, have a cuppa....


....but snowiest day in 18 years? This small amount of pathetic sleet? I really don't know what to say, it's rather ****ing embarrasing.

Re: HAPPY SNOW DAY

Well we had at least a foot and a half here, which isn't too bad.

Re: HAPPY SNOW DAY

Exactly, one and a half foot isn't bad at all, just sleet. I really don't know what all the panic is over.

We live in North Derbyshire in the hills and we've had thick snow on the ground now for 8 days. I can't even get the car out!

Re: HAPPY SNOW DAY

heavy snow due here in the early hours heading south.looking back over the years i remember the 1970s early 80s ssshhh the winter was what you call a winter.the snow lasted for weeks on end sometimes months.i dont mind the snow for some reason it makes me think about happy times as a kid.dont get me wrong my life is good but theres nothing i like better than to watch the snow fall outside whilst drinking hot coffee watching folk freezing to bits outside standing at bus stops ah forgot to add,with my feet up hahaha.them winters are long gone,ah well happy days
