Of course the little ones won't be troubled in the slightest. They will have at sledging, and then want ice lollies!

Mary had a little lamb
Its fleece was white as snew
And every where that Mary went
The little lamb went also.


I don't know why but the typo in the headline made me think of Thomas Alva Edison.

I would think that the English are used to getting 4 inches.

From central New Mexico going North, man schools are opening late tomorrow, if at all. Roads are treacherous, but it's not enough to close I-40. Yet.
My wife said When she was coming home, from my sons' scout meeting, the traction control was giving her hell due to snow/ice/ slippery road conditions. Truth be told, if it fights with me, I just turn it off.

I got most of that. You lost me with the weird ones: "aeroports", "Olde", "snouw" and "inches"

You know who likes to get 4 to 6 inches? Subby's mom. Especially when II shove my bonnet into her boot.

Yes, we have aeroplanes, but airports.

And where does all this "pip pip" bollocks come from? Some upper class twit types may say "toodle pip" occasionally but never "pip pip".

That is all, cheerio.

As a Mexican farker I am not amused at the thought of having to endure temperatures that can freeze water.

Kraftwerk Orange: texdent: What is that in American English?

Still four to six inches.


Except if you look at the pictures, it's 2" tops. I'm not denying perhaps somewhere in the UK they had that much, but you'd think they'd get some good submissions of the evidence. That's the dirtiest snowman I've seen since I was six years old and the neighbor boys... nevermind.

Good morning, I'm from jolly old England, and if there's one thing 40 years on this tiny island has told me, it's never believe any of the taradiddle they print in that rag. It snowed, for sure, but we ain't crippled, mate

OK I'm going to the UK next month for vacation and I plan to go all over the place. This weather is wholly unacceptable please tell the Queen to make it stop and not return until I come back to the USA.

Good to hear! Because if history is anything to go by, you guys have dealt with much worse. I was quite confused. Shame on me for believing the Daily Fail!

If I may add, if there is one thing in my 40 years on this tiny island has taught me is that you could have a fine dusting of snow here and the public sector will crash. Schools will close, trains will be cancelled and roads will be gridlocked. When we get the real stuff the country pretty much shuts down. We're the laughing stock of the northern hemisphere!

It snowed in Tokyo yesterday, so me and my kid and another family went out to play in the snow. There's a brand new condo that went up right across the street from me, and no one's moved in yet, so the parking lot was a pure white winter wonderland. I played there with my kid, making snowmen and throwing snowballs. The other family came out about half an hour later and we started building bigger snowmen.

At some point, the security guards changed. The earlier guard just told us to be careful and let us do our thing, seeing as no one was going to be coming in for a visit to the management office with the roads completely blocked by snow. The new guard was a hardass and told us all to get lost.

So we abandoned the snowmen we were building right where they were. That left a series of 3-4 foot blocks of snow piled right in front of parking lot. They were still there this morning when I walked by, so I imagine they are now solidified into a pile of ice a yard high. Have fun moving that, you hard-ass dickwads.
