Following my earlier aversion to the snow two things have happened:

1) The Stiglet has arrived; and

2) The Foz has new boots.

Therefore, bring it on. I'm up for a play!

I'll be packing my camera and camcorder wherever I go to get some nice snaps.

Mate, I bought a rear wheel drive sports car and moved to a road that doesn't get gritted just before the coldest, so know all about sod's law!

Lovely job!

That's why I'll be keeping my SLR handy (although I'm no David Bailey!) as I want to get some decent quality shots if possible.

Bavaria.
Phil, yes I use WRG2.
I should remove the lip to have a play on the fields but I can't be bothered so I am hoping to find a snowed car park next time it snows.
The problem is even though the streets are covered early in the morning, they clear everything in a couple of hours!

We've got snow over here in Macclesfield. Well I say snow, what I mean is a dusted covering up on the cat and fiddle. I was up there yesterday morning, took the dogs for a walk and even with cold weather gear on the wind chill factor was too much. Car temp gauge said -4 but i'm betting there was a 20mph wind. Cooooooold!

Heres hoping it snows at weekend though, our local car park needs some doughnuts in it!

If we get a proper covering I'm off for a play on the Epsom Downs and Banstead woods.
