    We're snowed in...
    Wow!

    The snow is pretty much the same as yesterday here. I almost slipped a few times on the way to Uni. I should probably invest in better gripped shoes.

    Just woke up to a couple of centimetres settled outside nothing big but it's like the perfect amount, everything looks pretty but life continues as normal.

    A good foot and a half here. Everything has pretty much ground to a halt. No cars on the roads, very few people about, many places shut.

    Never seen snow this bad in my life.

    My uni is closed for the day! I'm not too happy about it though because it's probably going to get rescheduled and I wanted to go home next week when my final essay is handed in. There's so much snow here - it looks beautiful but was a nightmare to walk home in last night. Three people offered to help me walk in the snow because I kept slipping down! I really want to go for a walk in it later but I don't know if I can be bothered with the wet and the cold.

    My Spanish seminar today has been cancelled so I pretty much have a snow day. Nice.
    Yesterday we spent the day making an igloo (spot the walrus):
    That is awesome! We almost ended up building an igloo last night...but we couldn't be bothered in the end. I did build one a few years ago, using a lunch box to make 'bricks', but I got bored after about 3 layers of bricks

    I love how you add 'with the kids' on the end like an excuse...I'm 21, I quite happily went snowboarding on a Ben 10 skateboard yesterday and built a snow man :p:

    haha well I'd probably not have mustered up the energy to be arsed to go outside and build one if it hadn't been for my kids wanting me to lol.
    Not that I don't like making snowmen, I do once I get into it, but I'm totally knackered now lol. And starving. I'd have probably just gone 'sod it I can't be bothered' if it weren't for them

    It takes a surprising amount of time and effort, doesn't it! Took us a good few hours and loads of us were at it!

    Yeh it seemed like such a great idea at the time, a few hours later you're thinking 'what the **** did I do this for?!'
    I do want to give it another go though, hopefully the snow will hang around until I've got some free time again...but clear up ready for getting to a gig in London next week (or at least make sure the trains are running!)

    In Milton Keynes we'd had about 2cm's of the stuff. Not much at all compared to most of you lot! Bah!

    It's been snowing steadily where I am pretty much all morning and there's like 20cm of snow now. We went into sixth form for an hour this morning and then they just sent us home. And we're so behind on our chemistry syllabus...it's not fair!

    No God. I am not going to play a game of "find the roads under the snow" with you.

    You win :nothing:

    Almost constant snow in Sheffield. All my lectures/seminars are cancelled! Unfortunately, hospitals can't close due to bad weather, so might have to go to work to cover staff who are snowed in at home... I've already worked 2 extra shifts this week!

    They've cancelled the bus service though, so might have to sledge into work later if I get called in! Fine on the way there, how do I get back up the endless hill home?
