So today Ath Cliath is waking up under a nicey blanket of the white stuff (no, not that  Wink )

And it's not the 5 snowflakes we had last year either, I had more on my Astrhaa this morning that I had in Low Elbonia (CMF) when I lived there.

It's already wreaking havoc in the city center as I write this  Silly

We've had a nice big snowfall here in YUL, too. It's actually quite early to have this much, actually. Or at least that's how it feels - doesn't seem like it should be wintertime yet.

Well, enjoy it!

Next flight.... who knows.

No, these remained in High Elbonia.
I however rushed over to get new front tires last night as the front ones looked more like Group N slicks than street tires  Silly

Here is what your former car looked like this morning when I woke up :

it is snowing quite a lot in Dresden, and the wind gusts are strong. Wonderful, I am on call tomorrow, that means lots of fractures due to slippery roads and sidewalks.

At least it is very pretty.

Enjoy your winter in Dublin (love that city).

Yep just spoke to my sister standing outside a hospital in Dublin (my niece was operated on last week in case any of you didn't see my thread, and glad to say she's been discharged today)... mysister could only speak a few minutes and even put her cigarette out half way through the call as she said she was turning blue!

From UTA's photo, the snow doesn't really look that much... we had quite a nice white Christmas 'morning' last year in south county Dublin though.

I was hoping to see some of the white stuff here in Toulouse after a week of very cold forsty and sunny conditions, but today it's just raining like a typical Irish winter day!

UTA, I'm sure that '73' registered car of yours has seen a lot more snow than that... 74... Savoie or Haute-Savoie? Can't remember!

Flyingbabydoc... enjoy the snow in Dresden and all the fractures! Will send you a message later.



Long live Aer Lingus!

It's indeed Savoie (still has a Savoie sticker at the back  Smile ) and she has been in a lot more snow than that.

Here we see her in happier (!) times expertly driven by 707cmf  Silly :

We had (wet) snow here aswell, with pretty strong winds. Now all we have is the winds. At AMS the winds are well above 30kt, with gusts reaching 55kt (!! Wow! )

KLM is having a nasty morning I'm sure!

As long as it waits until after 2pm before it starts, dont want to be stuck at work all weekend!

Well I can assure you, it is snowing in Glasgow as I type this, and my home town of New Cumnock (about half-way between Glasgow and you) was seeing the beginnings of snow when I left for work about 7.30 this morning.

Note to self : handbrake parking is not necessary out of town.

If you want to see the full (or fool) story of that, check the whole story (no car nor 707 were hurt during the filming !!!)

Apparently so, yes. I was told it gets frosty, but never really snows. It snowed I think once last Winter.

Right now, it's actually snowing, and I'm in the city at work! Really cool!!

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!
