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.

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

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.

Well chums,

In addition to our snowfall, which hasn't ceased all day, we in sunny New Cumnock in south-west Scotland now have no electricity - hence I sit here using the battery on my laptop to surf the net in otherwise complete darkness.

Seriously, how the hell can something this foolish occur - I live in Scotland FFS, but we get a wee bit of snow and the whole fucking country grinds to a halt!

I would move somewhere with a more moderate climate if it wasn't for the fact that I love the cold weather more than the heat.

I'm off now to send my boss an e-mail and tell him I won't be in tommorow, lest a fairy appears and removes the 5ft deep snow drift from the front of my house!
