I just tried to go to a potluck at a friend's house and the roads were covered in snow! My car slid a little. I turned around and went home.

Now I have a hugeass bowl of cilantro peanut coleslaw and nobody to eat it with, but snow! Still snowing!

today was our first snow that stuck. i went to my friends' house yesterday and ended up staying over instead of walking home late at night in the snow. it was the bestest! we stayed up real late and drank dark wintery beer, ate pecan pancakes at 3 in the morning, and watchen ellen and curb your enthusiasm. then this morning my friend made me coffee with hot cocoa in it, and we made a delicious breakfast while it continued to snow forever. here are some photos of this purty snowy day that i took when i got home.

We had our first real snow yesterday. The kind that stuck. I think we got maybe 3-4". Just cold for the next few days, though, no more snow in sight until Thursday maybe. You know how those things change. Gorgeous pictures, everyone!

I've been able to keep my annoyance with snow (especially driving in it, which makes me have to spend more time in the car, and sometimes be late for things or have to cancel things I'd rather not cancel) separate from my love for it (+1 to all the things in truepeacenik's poetic post, especially the sound-muffling part!). It's weird to be in Massachusetts without a flake of it, and see pix of the mid-south and England and other places with tons of snow on them. Even wintergrinch Desdemona has been heard to comment that she wants "just enough snow to make it pretty"!

It snowed yesterday! It landed as rain but fell as snow! Mostly teeny tiny flakes with a bunch of big clumps of snow. It only lasted about twenty minutes, but it was nice to see.

Can you see the flakes? Look close!

I think we had our first snow a week or so ago. It was really beautiful at first, and actually still is, but I'm terrified of riding my bike now that a lot of the snow has iced over. But it is still super exciting every time big, fat snowflakes whirl around :)

It started snowing last Friday night and stopped a week later. The UK is never prepared for snow, even though we seem to get more each year. I've heard it's going to snow again later this week. I hope it does and we all get snowed in :)

We had our first "real" wintery snow in Ottawa, Canada today!! Real as in snow clods coming down from the sky, and fluffy on the ground, not like the random, wet, discharge-y snow that starts in October/November. Even caught some on my tongue! But for the record I hate winter and being cold in general. While I was glad I was prepared with my lined wellies, godammit I hate brushing the car.

It flurried on Dec. 1 and today. That's pretty early for us, even for just flurries. Maybe we'll get some real snow this year!

Apparently there were flurries last week, but I want some real snow. I'd appreciate if it were enough to get off of work, and if it snowed everywhere except my driveway, though.

We are completely covered with snow, I think that snow cover is about 40 cm or more thick. And last Monday my boyfriend was going back home for the 5 and a half hour instead of usual 1 and a half.
I love newly fallen snow but no more than in one hour it's marked by dogs pees and other stuff... and it's gross.

Oh. We have just gotten an 'urgent weather warning': "staff and students should not venture out of University buildings until further notice". fork fork fork.

okay holy fork. Canada, you crazy! The snow was up to my thighs in my parking lot. My car was buried. I mean totally and completely buried. I can't believe I made it to work...but there's no one here so I might be going home soon.

It's snowing! Just flurries, probably won't stick, but fun anyway.

I have no idea how you got your car out of that and drove to work (but I also grew up in South Carolina and generally have no idea how to drive in snow).

It wasn't fun or safe, but as a driver in the snow belt of Ontario you kinda get used to it. I wish I could afford snow tires!

I just checked my work's website and we are closed due to the snow! Totally unexpected and makes up for it taking 2 hours to get home yesterday. Back to bed? Back to bed.

We're getting a snow! At 3 am. Which means it will be done by 3:10 am so I have to set my alarm to go stare at the sky in awe for four minutes before I've had my fill and can go inside and hibernate until next year. I'm excited! I hope Chester lets me dress him up and then frolics and then builds a snow dog. I have high hopes for tonight.
