Ahhh... I hate the snow. I've always hated it! It's so wet and squishy and soft. It makes driving harder and more difficult. It closes roads. But then again... we really need to get snow because that's where a lot of water supply comes from... So I'm thankful for the snow (even though I hate being in it... but that's okay, it doesn't snow often where I live - although it snow nears where I live).
supposed to get another 30 cm tonight... ye gods!
That's great news.... we are off skiing in a couple of weeks... wish we had more snow here... but then again, having seen the Brits drive in snow perhaps we are better off with rain !!
Was sledding this afternoon after gifts and lunch! Wicked Christmas!
Thats awesome congrats all you Canucks! It's been quite a winter pretty much everywhere in North America. I love it!
Global warming could make Sweden extremely cold in the near future if these steps happened...
a. Polar ice caps melt (happening right now)
b. Salt concentration in the northern sea drops and disrupts the gulf stream patterns (where warm water comes up the atlantic near the surface of the ocean, then drops and returns the cycle when it cools down).
IF the gulf stream "shuts down", then basically all of nothern Europe will lose its winter heater...
Snow is a part of life. It is beautiful!
I didn't see much snow in my country during the last years.
20 years ago, when I was kid, it was PLENTY of snow couple months of year. Now, couple of weeks or couple of days a year. I feel terrible.
40 years ago, my mother said that the snow was so big that buried the houses!
Global warming indeed works. And I don't like it.
