    Unhappy Again...*sigh*

    Woke up to this, this morning. Ten cm so far, and still coming down in buckets. And an arctic outflow expected this afternoon, dropping temps to the -10C range. Enough already!
    I really really really really really miss summer....

    I don't know how you do it! I'm not a snow fan, I don't ski anymore so I have no need of the stuff, I just want sunshine and blue sky's and decent temps.

    then there's Seattle where they have non-stop news coverage of the WEATHER and we get 1/2" that melts even on the grass.
    Send your snow down here! I'm ready for it!

    You got a lot of snow. Down here in Kent we got just a sprinkle, which is melting as I type...we are just hoping it does not turn into ice on the way into work this evening.

    I'm jealous!! I want snow too! We didn't get any in Norway when I went home for the holidays and here in the south of England none is every likely to appear! I miss skiing....and the excuse to put studded tires on my bike...and bundling up in warm wool clothing and playing in the snow....building snowmen, sledding, making snow angels....did I mention I'm jealous? If you don't want the snow, feel free to ship it over. I will happily take some...

    I love the snow - I figure if it is going to be cold it might as well snow. Then I can go out and shovel, snowshoe, and cross country ski! Otherwise, I'm stuck in the gym or on my trainer - yuck

    We seem to be having a perpetual drought so the snow just isn't what it used to be anymore:

    SEND IT TO VERMONT!!!!
    DH and I are heading there tomorrow night for a weekend of skiing. It's looking like we *might* be able to get 2 days in, before it turns to rain.
    Miserable excuse of a "winter" here on the east coast. It was down to 30 F this a.m. - the coldest I've seen in ages. Good grief.

    All right, I lied. After I went to bed it started snowing again. We woke up to three inches of snow. Fortunately Mr. East Hill is good at driving in snow and he knows how to put chains on the pickup.

    I got an entire two miles on the mountain bike today (the 10th)!

    I think I can forget about snow this year, they predict 18°C (64,4 F) this weekend. I have daisys in my garden. The weather has gone crasy this year .
    We organise ski competition in my town every year, and thay had to make artifitial snow and pray to God it will indure the heat. Problem is that last year the winnter was not so cold, and than the summer wasn't so hot either. And I love hot summer
