Snow!!!

Finally. After many promising weather reports it really did happen, we got snow. We woke up yesterday morning to a fine white dusting and flurries of stuff coming out of the sky. I opted for my car to get to the luas - reluctantly as I am really battling to shift this Christmas weight and walking to the luas HAS to help somewhat, but I digress. The roads were slippery and the drivers all very sensible, some overly so but Malcolm and I made it to work and back unscathed. A lot of the snow was actually like polystyrene balls, teeny tiny snow balls falling from the sky, and no it was not hail because they were sort of bouncy and soft, not hard. Weird.
This morning most of the evidence has been washed away by rain but our flower bed against the wall has not succumbed to the elements and it is still all pretty and white - so yesterday it really did snow!

Hi Nats, The snow is still very thick where we are, but they are expecting more during the week and on Friday, so I think Saturday may be a good day to go taboggoning in the mountains!!!

Sounds like a plan..if I had a taboggon! Tomorrow is supposed to rain so it will probably wash all the snow away...or make a soupy mushy mess.
