WE had about four inches of snow yesterday, incredibly early for us. It is packed down on the roads, and driving is pretty dangerous. Not supposed to get up to the freezing point today.

Only one of our cars has snow tires, so I am stuck at home. Good thing I work from home!

Ugh...the autobahn and snowpack always made me nervous...some of the resulting pile-ups from cars doing 130+ and hitting ice were utterly amazing (in a bad way of course)...

-19C on the drive in to work this morning! Too cold to even ski. yuck
 
Belgium, yesterday evening...


(Er, this one is probably France, actually. It took my colleague about 8 hours to get to Brussels from the Lorraine region via Luxembourg, where most of the weather-related traffic problems usually happen).

YEs, and of course my husband had a business trip to near Frankfurt yesterday. He said on the drive home they only averaged about 70 km/h, but it was truly amazing how many cars were still going so fast. Not a good idea when you can't see anything and the road is icy, but hey......

My husband got home safely.

Same here in Belgium: bad weather rarely makes any difference to (what I think is) an appalling standard of driving. Seems like some people have a deathwish. Folks can do what they want, whatever, but the trouble with that in driving terms is that the rest of us risk suffering the fallout.

Same here, the snow is now about 4" higher than the door step, about 1ft deep in untouched places.

Gutted I cant take the bike out in it, still waiting for the back to heal properly. :/

Looking out my office window at folks slipping on it below, I was just wondering why cyclists are hardwired to love snow the same way little kids do. Even though cycling and snow are not easy bedfellows.

When I was a kid, on our club runs we used to attack off the front just to deliberately ride headlong into deep snowdrifts.

But the cold and wet would soon get under my overshoes. It's no coincidence I suffer from poor circulation in my feet nowadays. 'Snow joke, you know ;)

It's snowing again this morning, sigh.

Although they say we might actually get up to the freezing point this weekend!

It's a perfect time to take up cross country skiing Susan!!! :D
 
Did I see we live on top of a hill?

Just got back from taking my son to the doctor, as long as you go slowly it is ok, and they are already scraping and sanding. But it is still coming down :-(

We don't actually have all that much snow, it's just that what is there is not going away.

We have had a cool change today. Down to 29c from the high 30s of the last week. Forecast is for mid to high 20s for the next week with a chance of rain. I live in a drought affected area, where everything is already differing shades of brown, and can't even begin to image the snow and cold.

Our drought broke this year, with the highest rainfall in 17 years. We even have puddles. I'm still astounded by them.

I find the posts about living in snowy environments fascinating but it's beyond my comprehension. And the temperatures! I'm surprised people can actually live there. :D

46C and a hot wind blowing like a fan-forced oven, now that I understand.
