Snow.

I made it about as far as the Grange before it hit. At first a couple of small flakes sneaked past, as if they might have fallen off one of the trees. Then a few more, and within a couple of minutes the hills had disappeared and the city was engulfed in a cloud of swirling snowflakes as large as my thumbnail. Within a couple more they were starting to lie on the road and the pavements, adding to the remains of last night's fall on roofs and parked cars. Soon my glasses were useless, covered in drops of melt, and a crust was building up on my jacket and hair.

By the time I reached the Kings Buildings, the fall was slackening, the flakes were smaller and the sun was breaking through. I looked straight up into blue sky above me and saw untold thousands of white fragments tumbling down through it.

It was like being wee again, in Bishopbriggs. My memories are of it snowing a lot back then, although I'm sure I'm only remembering the best bits.
  • Current Mood: happy.
I had all but stopped by th etime I left home at 8. You must leave the house bright and early.

I want it to snow more.
I leave later than you do. It started up again.

I want it to snow more too.
Ah yes I just heard from a co-worker who left late today. She said the medows was a blizzard at 9:30. Cool. I wonder if it will stay?
Probably not, but there's possible snow forecast for the next couple of days. We'll see how it goes.
Yes, it has nearly all gone out here to. Oh well looks like no snow to play in when I get home.
Damn - I was having a lie in what with having a couple of days off. I missed it ! :(
Must be a global phenomenon - I just shovelled about 10cm of snow off my front walk and the sidewalk in front of our house. Fortunately it's still a new enough experience to be a novelty :-)

Do you want the Cambridge version?

I made it all the way to work before the heavens opened, a few lonely flakes preceeding the massive undulating cloud of dusty particles, strangely dark against the grey-white of the morning sky as they spiralled and floated with almost ethereal beauty across the rooftops and grasslands about the ugly, angular business park. Almost immediately, the snow began to cease. The barely settled, speckled flakes of snow then aggravatingly melted into slush and everything was exactly the same, but wetter.
Not bad at all. I prefer our snow, though, because it sounds like we had more of it.
Uhh.. You did. You must have done, or you are probably insane, because it fell here for about two minutes :)
Ignore everything I wrote. It's now.. God, what does snow do.. it's scabbing it down. Leafing it down, vomitting it down. There's lots of snow out there...
It's all stopped and melted into slush again now :( This has been the most overrated bout of so-called "snow" that I have ever had the naive misfortune to become enthusiatic about.
We have snow too. Because of where I live, deep snow could snow me in.
Good luck . . . I assume good luck for you means *not* beng snowed in?
