Absolutely fantastic  bigthumbsup

It's snowing here but it's only 2-3 inches. Just doesn't compare to being in the Alps last week. 7 ft snow drifts haha.

I live in Alabama, currently, but miss the weather "back home" in Lancaster, PA.

It's kind of funny to see people wearing heavy coats in 50 degree weather.

Good day  Smile

It's been snowing since friday. Roads are unpassable, and we are as good as stranded at home.

This is what germans call "Schneechaos"....

2-3 inches, is that all !!!!!!!

It's been snowing here since 8 o'clock last night and we've now got about 3 feet of snow at least!

My poor dog got lost in the garden this morning (and it's not exactly a small dog) and I can't get my car out of the driveway as it's got caught in a snow drift against the garden fence which has completely covered it (i'm only assuming it's still under the snow and hasn't been stolen)!

I'm fed up with snow. I can't remember a winter with so much snow like this year. It's about time for sping!

BTW - We had about 15cm of this stuff since yesterday.

GLA is still closed, but EDI re-opened about 9.30 this morning AFAIK.

PIK is open and it's near enough business as usual, the EK from Dubai diverted into PIK at about 12.30 though.

A few GLA flights diverted to Belfast earlier.
