    That time of the year again...we've had snow today!
    It melted pretty fast, and then we had some freezing rain which has all frozen on the ground tonight in one massive mess of ice. Made getting home...interesting. Had a few schools closed around here, and there were a load of traffic jams and stuff.
    Anybody else been getting any?

    The best i've seen around here is a chance of icy roads tomorrow morning.
    Why do I have to live in the hottest part of the country?

    Finally got snow today, though I doubt it'll stay this time, as it was melting as it snowed, so a bit remained on the ground, while a bunch of it melted and turned into ice when the sun set. Global warming rocks.

    Was awesome though, as I rode my new bike into work today (more here on the bike) and I haven't put the winter tires on yet, so I'm riding through snow and ice on busy roads with slick tires on an unfamiliar bike. It was kind of fun to watch peoples reactions as I slid up to intersections sideways, completely in control.

    we got 1cm here today!! just enough to depress me, i really really want to go skiing now. it's december FFS, we should have tons of snow. supposed to snow later in the week, hopefully that will give us some proper snow, and actually cover up the grass.

    Don't worry, I'm sure alberta will get tons of snow this winter. Either that, or every farmer will go bankrupt... Oh wait, the government will go bankrupt, the farmers will get massively inflated welfare checks! Yay.

    Just heard we're forecast more in the next couple of days. I better stock up, I've not got much food in. My milk was frozen this morning!
    I wonder where I can get some road salt from.

    The estate between where i work and the train station is currently and ice rink. if all the freezing weather wouldn't mind buggering off till saturday, so my other half can get back from inverness on a semi defrosted A90 I'de be happy, but its looking unlikely.

    We're forecast snow tomorrow for Edinburgh :(

    There was certainly a lot of cars coming into the city this morning with a decent covering of snow.
