Snowed in today

Took some pictures of the snow in Harrogate today. After half an hour trying to get the car off the drive I called it a day and built a snowman instead.

Most roads from the village are blocked apparently so it’s probably a good thing I didn’t get very far.

    All we’ve got in Cardiff is blue sky and wet roads. Snow missed us completely. Ba humbug!

    Good effort! I watched loads of cars slide into eachother outside our office, and yesterday a tool in a BMW slowly lside backwards down a hill while ruining his tyres. I love snow…

    It tipped down earlier, bright sunshine now, windy, but clouding over…looks cold outside. The missus is doing the lunchtime dogwalk today.

    Do you live in the UK?

    Here in Canada, if we looked outside in the morning and saw that “much” snow, we’d consider ourselves lucky and not even bother leaving for work early (to ensure arriving on time)!

    …although, on the flip side, if it gets over 30 degrees celsius or so – Canadians will melt like butter. :)

    Steve if we get even a slight dusting of snow everywhere comes to a stop.

    It’s not even on the news, because no one could make it to the BBC. That’s when you know it’s serious…
