Anyone else on the verge of being snowed in? The UK is pretty bad at the moment with more heavy snow forcast for Sunday. I suspect the same can be said about the rest of nothern Europe.
What's it like in Canada and America?
Here in the SW some small hamlets are on the brink of being cut off and the roads, even the main ones, are still icy and pretty treacherous.
Hi Maddog. Her in northern Italy a lot of snow the day 23 falled,for two days,but the rain followed and made it go away.The forecast said we are going to get some more snow in a two days.My son must start to be back in Durham University this week but he is not sure to leave. (better!).We are just back from Christmas Holidays in Switzerland were we have had serious ice problems,no trains running,ecc.In the mountain side even 1.50 snow and -8 degrees in full day...
Toronto - Beautiful weather from a Canadian perspective, minus 5C. A little light snow forecast in the next 24 hours, then no snow forecast in the coming week. The sun was nice yesterday. The pay off, my solar panel Christmas lights were certainly brighter than they were at Christmas. And that's the way it's going..it could be worse....it could be YIKES! Saturation.
They left me, leaving my house on fire, me running round - got out through the window. While clinging to the skirts of fate was not my idea of fun; I'll jump to it gladly. The town was filled with smoke and hate. Came to my senses just too late to realize that all I ever owned was borrowed. I thanked them for having shown me that nothing ever really belongs to anyone.
They burned my books and they broke my car, and gave the dog to a man who used him for breeding. They felled my trees and they tramped flowers and threw the kitten into my new pool. The same things done to other men had made them run away from the city. This being the case, I joined them there and breathing air spent the night with these new friends.

Does that guy have an ice pick handy. It's the ice age! It's not the snow, it's the ice. Not to alarm Steelmonkey, it's extremely cold now when salt won't melt the ice, the last few years have been a picnic compared to this.
(We can all dream of a new Anderson heavy (ice) metal song about the ice-age in the not so distant future ;>))
By this definition, we are still in the ice age that began 2.6 million years ago at the start of the Pleistocene epoch, because the Greenland, Arctic, and Antarctic ice sheets still exist. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_age
All along the icy wastes there are faces smiling in the gloom. Roll up roll down, Feeling unwound? Step into the viewing room.
You may have rather a lot of ice TT but here in good old Blighty we still have absolute pillocks who stand on the promenade and then complain if they get injured by crashing waves and all other kinds of rubbish . . . . . . .
Calgary has lots of snow and the forecast is for highs to be several degrees above 0 for a week or so, so that means rocky stubborn slush and tons of ice anywhere the water doesn't drain away by sundown or is caught in shade all day. I think it would be interesting to see 10,000 people with broadswords slamming away at windshields and car door locks trying to get things working. Ever have a car that starts just fine in the morning but the tires are locked in three inches of pooled ice? Comedy.
