    I also suffer from a romantic side thats why I prefer to stay indoors with my girlfriend with a hot cup of choco and a nice film but that can't happen if i can't travel to my girlfriends house because of the evil snow.
    Yeah I'll go get a cheap pair of boots or something with grip if it doesn't snow tommorow. Fingers crossed.
    Don't go cheap man, if your feet have stopped growing spend a bit more and treat them right, when you come in stuff them with newspaper and let them dry, then take a damp cloth and wipe the salt/grit marks off them. You can buy some products which help protect the leather against the snow too. Or if you don't want fashion boots just go for the invincible walking type of boot.

    You live on the West Coast of Norway right? So I guess that explains why the snow melts so quickly because of the gulf stream circulating warm air from the Caribbean, traveling up towards the UK where gathers acid rain that burns away your forest...
    Yes,lol. The climate in Norway depends on where you live. I live on the West Coast, and hence I get rainy and milder winters. Christmas of 2009 was the first white Christmas in about 10 years.

      I have to walk a grand total of one hour to uni and one hour back, not including various busses or trains that I may have to get along the way- so I'm not really looking forward to tomorrow, either!
      oh my lord

      wouldnt it just be worth buying accomodation instead of going through that every day

      I've driven 127,000 miles in all weathers; snow (and therefore icy roads) is by far the worst.

      Haha it's a long story.. I was living closer with my boyfriend, but things happened which meant I had to move back in with my parents.. was too late to get halls/a house up there- plus I hadn't got the loans for that so couldn't be bothered going to SLC and applying for it.. I'll survive :P

      My Mum drives me sometimes which only takes about 25mins, and I get every Thurs off so it's not every day

      Yeah snows rubbish . Last year I couldn't get to work for 3 days, then had to make up all my hours later on. And loads of the people I work with ended up having to sleep at the hospital! I liked snow when I was still at school because you got snow days, but working in a hospital sucks because it never shuts! Silly patients cant look after themselves for a few days!

      I'll swap with you, my school have NEVER closed because of the snow, and we have had it prettyyyy bad! Never ever ever! It's quite ridiculous, because half the people don't come in anyway so we don't get proper lessons as there are only like 5 people in each class. If it snows badly overnight I probably won't go in tomorrow seeing as I have only one lesson, so I'd be starting school at 8:30 and finishing at 9:30...hardly worth it, really.

      yeah well i mean, i personally would probably set up a tent somewhere around the university grounds, maybe returning home for a shower and some food

      but sure, if that works for you, i guess i can't have any qualms

      I don't really like snow, either.
      I like it for the first few hours. It makes my road look really pretty, and I live next to a lane which leads to the river, and that just looks simply amazing. And the church I live opposite looks nice, too.

      After a few hours, however, it just becomes a pain. We never seem to get the good sort of snow - we seem to just get the stuff which turns to slush as soon as you walk on it, so everything turns from fluffy white snow to grey slush. Then the slush re-freezes and going anywhere becomes a right pain.
      Not to mention the bitter coldness. No matter how many socks I put on, my feet always feel like they're going to drop off.

      There should be an unwritten rule that snow only falls from the 24 of december and then magically clears by 2 jan.

      Last year ,where I live from like the middle of december until late feb, the snow and ice caused major problems. And I live in a typically mild part of the UK.

      And I tell you what else annoys me, are the people who live in countries who live with snow all year round who laugh at us. Their governments spend money on all sorts of technology and other things to make it easier because it makes finanical sense . Our goverments do not and I find every year we are completely unprepared for this.

      You know what,we need to reverse all this global warming rubbish,lets pollute the atmos as much as possible and warm the planet up big time. Blame the cold winters on these environmentalist idiots.
      I thought Global Warning is meant to cause more extreme weather, such as colder winters, warmer summers, etc.

      Not too sure about that though...
