Minnesota typically gets tons of snow each year so our road and plow system runs like a well oiled machine. I have family in the state of Virginia, which barely receives any snow so when it does snow - the whole state seems to shut down for days on end. I guess it's a matter of being prepared and having the resources to address it.

Glad you guys are having fun with the snow.

The sad thing is that we all had to work last Monday and Tuesday as we were called in to clear the snow at a couple of sites....

What makes me wonder is that all our guys (who drive normal cars),two lorries, equipment etc etc, some from miles away arrived before 9am.... yet even their local staff cried off saying it was impossible to get there !!

I think most people used it as an excuse for an extended weekend......sometimes I think we get what we deserve... the Dunkirk spirit that made this country what is was seems to have well and truly vanished...

Still.... we may have been cold on the day but the nice big bill to the local council will keep us nice and warm.....

Anyway... thats enough moaning from this old fart... will shut up now !!

I was personally a big fan of the snow last week as I actually had a good excuse not to go to work for a change. I was saddened to see people moaning about the snow and the politicians on the TV moaning that the economy was loosing billions of pounds as a result of people not going to work. I personally started the day by sledging with my niece and nephew down a rather big hill and then finished by creating a rather excellent snowman. I wasn €™t the only person doing this as lots of mums and dads were off work and sledging also. I felt that the snow gave me and others the opportunity to spend some quality and fun time with their relations and that this was worth the economy loosing billions of pounds. Money cannot buy those sorts of memorys.

Shang....

Your right...those kind of memories are priceless....money just cant buy them..

There are some priceless memories I have.... that can be bought... one springs to mind... a lap dancing club in Lithuania... it was a cold December evening when we arrived, we were greeted at the door by... ops... (better stop there)....

Seriously though.... money just cant buy those great family moments...

PS...NN

Wales is a great country, full of great people. Its the sort of place where Men are "real" men, Women are "real" women and sheep are "real" nervous !!

Thanks for the interpretation. Sledging here is essentially what happens if you borrow money from a guy named Vito and can't pay him back.

We have those areas here too where the sheep are nervous. Careful of those toothless, slow witted types wearing coveralls and playing a banjo.

That's frightening that, it sounds like you've just described me exactly. I think my

appearance must be attributed to mass interbreeding. It's not easy for me having a mum which is also my auntie. *nl

Yep, CR1! We've not seen snow like it for years!

I was about twelve years old, the last time I remember it, how we had it last week! It was nice at first, but the novelty soon wore off!
