    I did. Total blizzard outside this morning. It was epic. Stopped now though. Even got a snowday, which was a shock since my school is the kind to be open even in the apocalypse. :lol: And since I wasn't expecting to be off today I left all my stuff at school! 2 weeks ago the school thought nothing of sending us to school in a blizzard, but when I actually need to be at school they close it?! Whyyyy?

    We had a short flurry just a while ago here in Brizzle, not enough to cover the ground though.

    Woke up to some snow - it seems to have stopped snowing though and I hope it stays that way... Thankfully I got home from Edinburgh on Monday so not going to get stranded anywhere... but yeah, after the past couple of weeks we had in Scotland I'm pretty fed up with it!

    I haven't even looked outside this morning (have a sky light in bedroom so can't see anything), but I bet there's hardly any! We had it all a few weeks ago though, so I'd probably cry if it was bad as that again. I need to get home today! And home is further North! Argh! And then my boyf has got to travel north next week again (to pick up his xmas present!)

    Woke up to a few very very thing patches on the ground. We're predicted quite a bit on saturday and more on monday/tuesday. Knowing where I live the predictions should be halved, even though that particular website has been very accurate in the past I think 30cm is more than unlikely...

    EDIT: It originally said 6cm was unlikely. While this is true, the actual forecast is 5cm tonight, 20cm tomorrow and 4cm on sunday - almost impossible.

    When there was snow before my interview, I was a complete Scrooge, shaking my fist at the sky and muttering, the works. Now I'm perfectly childish and content

    I hate snow. I had to put it away in nfront of the house at this morning. It took me 30 minutes and my back is hurting now.

    school buses are cancelled here and only a few students are left to teach..... 9 of 28 in my history class. I hate this. When the snow has gone they will ask for the copies of this week. Knowing me I will not find them and go for new ones.

    it is damn cold and it takes me longer than usual to get to work or to university.

        I do think its silly that the whole of the UK seems to shut down when theres snow though - I mean in some places I can understand if, for example my parents live in the countryside and they live in a lane that doesn't get any grit or anything...a few years ago we got proper snowed in for a few days but saying that there seems to be so many people 'oh no there's a cm of snow I can't go to school/work/uni' etc...I mean all my schools in the area (I live right opposite one too) are shut today - why? all the main roads are clear, I know some of the kids will come from the valleys etc (and they do have it bad up there) but here in the city its snowy yes, impassable no. Its like when it snowed last year I couldn't get into uni because the buses wern't running - roads were fine, uni was open...If I had a car I would have driven, but instead I can't actually get on and do the things Im meant to because someone else thinks the snow is 'too bad'.
        Last year I lived with a girl from Italy she thought it was so funny how we basically come to a stop every time it snows, she lives at the foot of the swiss alps and she says they often get a couple of ft or so, everyone just gets on with it...
        The UK just isnt prepared to deal with this type of weather - which I think is ridiculous considering it seems to be happening more and more frequently - I think as a child I remember snow maybe twice....I think its happened at least 6 occasions in the last 2 years now..
