8 inches of snow last night!!!! And it's snowing again!
Should I build a snowman? Or some other type of snow animal
but the course I was supposed to go on has been cancelled due to icy roads and possible bad weather later. I've taken the day off anyway.
No buses, no trams, no planes, no schools, roads are a mess. I went for a run last night 40 mins of laps around a playing field. Was like a scene from Rocky IV.
There's been no snow in London yet.
Without wishing to sound too wanky about it, it really was a glorious sight. Stunning.
Too cloudy today and too much snow falling.
and I saw loads of geese and a fox too.
However I have seen hardly any snow this winter and I'm starting to get a little ticked off.
I seem to live in a snowless pocket. There was a light dusting a few weeks ago and that's about it.
that's a given, surely?
which means i'm still in gay fucking work. One of about 4 people
i might even be able to break my personal best record for "least work done in a day". Who knows, the world record may even be in sight
I only got to sleep at 5 but I'm up and dressed and raring to go play, also I just fell down the stairs so I've already go tmy big fall of the day in.
Takes an hour. I don't have a coat. Or gloves. Or pockets.
OH GOD. Stupid snow.
I have my new coat on standby.
obviously I've sacked work off and will be taking a bracing walk to the pub later. (H) I took these while I was out and about this morning too.
and, of course, the aforementioned pub:
been snowing steadily all morning. I've never seen anything like this much before.
Over-joyed when I saw how thick the snow was today in Lancashire, taking advantage of the situation!
about 7 or 8 inches in salford. I think they're going to send us home soon, aparently the police have told people not to drive. Plus coffee island have sent all the staff home so the bacon butty run is taking ages. Boyfriend didnt have to work because stagecoach suspended all services.
it was snowing when i left the house this morning but trains were still working. i think tomorrow could be tricky, though.
in central manchester, so NO EXCUSES for me today. Sob. PLace is like a ghost town, so i may nick a teat tray and sledge down king street.
i can just imagine a sledge fashioned from the tops of Tommy Tippee bottles.
nah, a 9-month-old daughter and too many trips to mothercare...
I love Tommy Tippee, it's one of the few things that makes my ovaries twang with broodiness.
not enough for workless day, but enough for the car to go all colin mcrae on my ass.
Nobby Jobsworth just turned up. Can't even skive now
Walked in and it took 40 mins, god knows how those dudes trekked to the north pole - ballache. Half our office came in too.
Been snowing since I got here though, so we might be sent home at lunchtime as the chap that locks up doesn't want to be stuck here. Fingers are crossed...
Going home! There's not even any more snow forecast for here.
Now... snowman or sledging...
I'm sick to death of people going on about the bleeding snow in work. Why everything has to be about the bleeding weather I don't know.
and number 86s before you make excuses!
i'm just ratty because i have to work.
Everyone at the bus station got sent home though this morning. Chorlton park is A MA ZING
Go see it Manchester people!
do you mean King Street as in where Koreana etc is?
I'm going to go sledging AGAIN!!! I'll post pix as and when I have them. Also, I'm using an old scarf AS A HAT!!
he's snowed in at my place.
I wonder if the derby will be on.
There must be the best part of a foot of snow. Never seen my town look so pretty! http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs152.snc3/17935_391256260454_766585454_10401650_1416202_n.jpg
STupid firewall :-(
Also, I just sent a colleague out to admire my snowman handiwork and he's callnig it a snowcock. It doess look a bit phallic admitrtedly, but my hands were getting cold and I had to rush back inside for a conference call, and so I maybe made him a little too thin. And cocklike.
They're on my FB. I walked to the corner shops and there were people who clearly weren't going to work but still making it into the bookies. The florists was open but the two staff were busy making snowmen out the front. The amazing bakers was open too and was so toasty inside. PIE FOR TEA FOR ME!
Why are there no amazing bakers in the centre of town? You have a shed!
I had a look in it for a shovel earlier. There was no shovel.
well, what I mean is, I like the way that you've put him on top of the garden table to save you building the first 2 foot.
Saves me back dunnit
Annoyingly I was going to spend the day in the cinema, catch 3 or 4 films. Just checked the website and it's closed, the rotters...
With 8 inches of snow outside but still stuck in this bloody office, looking at people uploading pictures of them playing in the snow to Facebook.
This is rubbish.
But I'm stuck in Wales. I've been here now for two weeks and my funny accent is coming back.
The snow looks lovely on the mountains though.
Anyone near Brynmawr want to come sledging with me? I've got a homemade sledge.
Erm, not a real one though
You and your friends
Boxes of ten
Cool to the touch
You warn me so much
The white to your left
The red to your right
Are all that I’d seen
Til I realised the love that I seek
Lies right in-between
I love ya
I love your delicate way
The chill in my veins
Relieves me from pain
Again and again
I lose all control
Your taking your toll
And i’m no longer sane
Dont be afraid
The love that I show is the love that you made
So dont be afraid
‘Cos your in control
I’m just your slave
I love ya,
I love your delicate way.
Dont let him put you down
I won’t let him put you down
‘Cos your as good as the rest
And you’re much better dressed
I think pink is my colour
I wont drink from no other
Oh I love ya
Especially this way
I want ya
Believe me this way
I love your delicate way.
Gregs on King Street Manchester is closing.
Some of the hedges and trees in our garden have completely crumpled up, they look gutted. I feel like everyone's out in it havin' fun though when I'm stuck in. I'm sure they're not. They're not.
though it's meant to snow properly tonight. I'm not sure if I should be pleased or not
i pubbed it all afternoon
will probably get to miss work tomorrow. I won't, because my work is about thirty seconds from my front door. They don't clear the pavements even though I live in a city, which means I can't go running. Snow is stupid.
