Snow 06/07

Well, I thought that it was time for the annual snow thread now that we got a blizzard here yesterday, probably the biggest I've experienced in my life. How have your snow season been? And what are your thoughts on snow?

I thought that I would share some pics for those of you who never get snow. Personally, I'm not a fan of it since it wrecks chaos over the roads and other parts of the infrastructure. Flights have been cancelled and the railroads are closed.

And there is never enough of it for skiing

Does cocaine get grey when they get wet?

Yeah, the snow have been quite late in the winter and haven't come until after the new year. Last year, they lasted to nearly April.

We had an entire week of snow in the end of January. That was it. Last year, we had it for months.

We had about one day of it sometime this month. Everyone got a day off school for it...

Apart from me, who was stuck in bed with glandular fever.

There was very little snow this year, I think only one day. I made some pictures in Amsterdam, I might post them later.

We don't get snow any more. It's because of global warming. Fuck you global warming.

Actually, apparently blizzards hit 'the whole of the UK' a while back. But when I say the 'the whole of the UK', I mean the 'south', because the BBC couldn't give a shite about anything north of the River Trent. Fuck you BBC.

It's snowed like a motherfucker here. Cold as hell for awhile. Finally coming out of it. It basically convinced me that Al Gore is full of shit (even more so than before).

Never seen snow.
It seems nice, though.

It's bloody hot in here at the moment.

Well, it's cold, and wet, and it gets everywhere, and when there is snow there is most likely also a motherf***ing wind wich blows your brain through your ears, all sidewalks are slippery or wet with a mass of water with salt, wich is a motherf***er on your boots.

I f***ing hate snow.

Snow looks pretty, especially when you rarely see it. There was a huge (for Oxford) snowfall a couple of weeks ago as Dan said, and a lighter one before that, but they didn't last long at all.

The only times I dislike snow is when they're melting; it gets slippery and annoying while biking on the bunch of slush on the road. Secondly, it's also annoying when it snows a lot when I'm on a bike. It makes me wear my sunglasses to see well (even at nights, believe me)!

But on the other hand, when I'm on a walk in this cold, calm weather, it gives me a comfortable feeling when my body gets warm in the clothes while my face gets cooled down. Really comfortable.

Snow in Charlottenburg, Berlin - pictures taken about a month ago...




I'm not entirely gifted with a camera, and on top of that I'm poorly equipped, but I still like the pics
