First snow of the winter
« on: December 27, 2014, 09:11:03 AM »

Hi I hope you all have had great Christmas and are getting ready for the new year. Last night we had the first snow of this winter it started around 7pm and was still snowing around midnight. This morning it has thawed slightly I live 650 feet above sea level not far from Leeds/ Bradford airport and we are prone to having snow. The forecast is for frost next week lets hope it wont stop our sailing activities. Do You have snow in your area?

It's either a white Christmas followed by a thaw at New Year's, or a wet Christmas followed by a cold New Year's - and, this year, it's the latter.

BTW, there are some truly demented people who manage at least one round of golf every month here in Nova Scotia.

That should be a great event Tony, although it's a bit too far away from me, nearly 4300 km by road {:-{

A bit of snow is not a good enough excuse! (mute recommended!)
