It's snowing and beginning to settle here. Looks like there's plenty more on the way too.

The snow is expected here betewn 3 and 6 today and it is a barmy -1 at the moment. She who must be obayed is traveling up from Portsmouth later this afternoon after a conference so have my fingers crossed that she gets here safely. Doggies enjoyed there walk accross the fields but Brandy does not like the cold as it gives her athritus gyp.

Scientists involved in extensive weather reasearch have announced they are now able to control snow.

Doctor Franz Hanzenhoffer, speaking from his labs at Munich University told Flops News Service 'It hass tikken a vile butt through our exceedingly clever experiements and free use of licorice, hamster toenail clippings and fairy liquid, ve can now use a pepsi powered rocket to spread our potion into the upper atmosphere and banish snow altogether'.

His laboratory partner, curvy redhead Amy Von Bingenbanger (38-22-36) concluded 'Yes, iss itz true, vee can actually stop that horrid whiten stuffen altogether but we noted that sum members of der humin race actually liked der stuff so we adjusted our potion so that it snowed for a total of six days - Dec 24th-26th and three random days in January. You vill understand we were also under pressure from photographers working for greeting card companies and chocolate tin manufacturers'

A snap survey conducted by Flops News Service showed that 99.5% of people were in favour of this scientific breakthrough the general consensus being 'Who needs that stuff? It's cold, then slushy, then hard and icy and every road mysteriously has salt stains for three months following a snowfall. Good riddance'.

The only alternative view we were able to find was from ski manufacturers who are now threatening to go on strike unless snow is resumed.

Fantastic news! :)

... curvy redhead Amy Von Bingenbanger (38-22-36)...
Closet snow/winter aficionada. A cold 38-22-36 fact.

:bow:

Weather chez Urmas:










A normal winter. Seasons = variety. Seasons = good. Urmas has spoken. :dance:

P.S. Could Flops News Service please publish contact info for Ms. v. Bingenbanger. I quite like her credentials.

I see the Finns are still keeping up that tradition of throwing shovelfulls of snow from roofs on to the heads of passers by below. :lol:

Does Amy Von Bingenbanger have a blonde sister Flops ?

Think of it as... what army engineers call "controlled explosion". OR ELSE (from 2011).




(Italian cars just aren't winter-worthy. :lol: )

From your link,

In Juankoski in North Savo, a nine-year-old girl died after having fallen off hay bales wrapped in plastic while playing at a farm, whereupon she was buried in soft snow.
That is just so so tragic. Makes you realise that the white fluffy stuff has to be treated with respect. :(

Tragic... but rare. If you look at the numbers, snow isn't the killer. Now, ice then...


(Oh, and "the average victim" is not a child... it is an intoxicated middle-aged man. :cheers: )

Sez the Finnish Meteorolgical Institute:



(last winter, there was 1 m of snow in the beginning of February... must be that global warming thingy...)



Sez KDE (Kool Desktop Environment):




Nice, normal midwinter weather... and a nice, normal indoor temperature of 23 °C. District heating be a good invention.
