Looks a lot like here in Sweden. I heard that a couple of students in UK got snowed in at a pub! Two or three days they were trapped inside along with some more ppl. Appearently, they got along fine, helped with cooking and dining and stuff. Oh, and the only beer/lager left when they were finally (or unfortunately) released, was the Riggwelter Sheep Lager Very Happy

Looking at these pics, I strongly advice you to take a sleeping bag and go to your nearest pub!

I tend to be one of THOSE folks who find redeemable qualities in most things & some people...I understand Hitler was nice to his dog. HOWEVER I UTTERLY DESPISE Winter in general & snow in particular. Snow has ABSOLUTELY no redeemable qualities. It makes life difficult, & often dangerous; then it turns from a shimmering, pristine state into greyish brown sludge...rain has the decency not to need shoveling.
In keeping with their reputation for accuracy, the local weather service has over the last month or so be vertually perfect in predicting the temperatures & percipitation...although ONLY after the fact. The balmy 40 [Fahrenheit that is] something days with lows in the 30s have turned out to be FREEZING, MISERABLE days with highs around the low 20s & lows I'd rather not think about. The 3" of snow predicted for Christmas turned out to be slightly off with an accumulation of just over 27" followed this week by "a dusting" of 8" or so of the DISGUSTING stuff. The record lows of the past few years give Global Warming a rather bad name with about the same credibility as a used car salesman.

They say the first sign you're getting old is when you begin to hate the snow. :3

Also, was your town founded by orcs?

No, but when Orcs took it over they dropped the "Man" from the name and replaced it with something more suitable.

Actually the first sign is all the cracking sounds that come when you get up in the morning...snow comes later on.

That's funny, because I've got a busted back right now... I'm creaking like a rusty gate. X3

I find people start hating it when they have to move it... or when the salt starts corroding their cars paintjob.

Or if you are forced to cut up horses or cows to crawl inside them to keep warm. I got some angry letters after that, I did... and I lost my lightsaber in the process too...

Oh don't get me started on that... you kill a few cows and boy do the farmers around here get pissed. It not like I didn't eat it after, and hell, I even left them the best cut of meat, hanging outside their bedroom window to drain the blood off. Pff, farmers... I can't figure them out.

Sorry, I think we phased out. Yeah, the weather, absolutely charming, actually... if your'e a Yeti! Very Happy

I dont think there are anymore descriptions for us to use to express our common hatred for snow and cold anymore...

It's amazing how our opinions of snow change. I loved it as a kid, throwing snowballs at my mates, but now that I have to drive to work in it, well...

It took me half an hour to get out of the car park in the early hours of this morning.

You guys need to frolic in the snow more. Or, if you're less insane, find a snow-related hobby... like skiing or hunting. I myself used to enjoy paintball in the snow - the balls and guns freeze up, and its a blast trying to keep them running - its like the Russian front. :3

Hey! A challenge is taking form in my head! Lets make a snow scultpure of something Mordheimy and put up a photo! Then vote for a winner! If that is not frolicing in the snow, I dont know what is.

well, I don't model snow that much other than building kickers, rails, and hits... but I still love snow, even more then when I was a kid! probably cause we never get any around here - with this year as an exeption

(this year I'll be spending about two months in Switzerland just to make love to the snow there... Razz)

for more on that..: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=345849&id=861170531
I'll likely be adding a lot more come season...
