Let it snow let it snow let it snow!

Well the forecast says it will start to snow at midday, i.e. in around 20 minutes time. Supposed to snow for the rest of the day, getting heavier as time goes on. Might be a short day today!

I am going to be off work tomorrow anyway as my daughter has got a check up about having a brace fitted - poor girl!

I will see if I can get some good snow photos tomorrow, especially in my home town where they have almost completely failed to grit the roads - most are now just ice-rinks!

Ah well, back to work, Coke and doughnuts. Want one? I have got a few spare!

12.15 - No snow yet! It is LATE! Like the busses and trainsm, I guess, delayed by the weather?

12.45 - Still no snow! I think they have lied again!

1.30 - No sign of the snow. This is getting silly!

3.25 - I think that something is trying to fall now. Very fine, but there is definitely something in the air!

First, love the new title of your blog :) too cute.

well, don't know if you've gotten snow yet or not, but here's to hoping that you make it home safely and enjoy your day tomorrow. looking forward to seeing some pics.

is your daughter getting a walking brace or what? i almost had to get them when i was younger, but for some reason i didnt, and all seems fine now.

Happy New Year!

Um Naief - still no snow. My daughter is getting braces for her teeth - sorry for the confusion!

Don't you wish we could all be as inconsistent as the meteorologists and still get paid for a job well done?

Sounds like you are wishing for that snow, so I hope you get some!

Terri - Maybe forecasters are just Contrary? :-) Thanks, I think it is starting to arrive now - YAY!

Those updates had me riveted to my seat!!!
You know, you could always come to Winnipeg if you wanted some snow. I wouldn't mind giving you a bunch of mine :)

I was watching our Weather Channel and saw the report of the snowfall in England - people having to be rescued - stay safe!!! We are just cold here at the beach and that always changes quickly.

Now you're just showing off...wahhhhh, where is my snow???

Good luck to your daughter...braces aren't so bad and her teeth will be so lovely when they come off!!!

We were told it was going to snow last night. NOPE!!!!!

When I was in Oregon last week they said no snow in the Portland area. They got dumped on.

I think the weather demons are being mean.
