We've still got about 2 inches on the road. It is thawing now though.

It sure is. It was nice while it lasted though. A few miles from where I live there was more than a foot of snow lying on a minor road. Good thing we have a land rover!

We don't get any snow anywhere near the cities but we do get good snow up on the mountains.

I hate cars going in the snow...they mess it up and make it all slushy :-/

Snows melting here too, I hate when its in between snow and no snow...

Hopefully it snows again soon, just not mondays wednesdays or fridays...I have to walk over to photography on those days lol!

Um... something like that :wink:

It's actually an old Defender 110.

We don't use it that often, we usually use our Toyota Avensis which on Borders roads actually out-performs the Prius, but not in cities.

Anyway, it's only the start of January and we've had good snow already, so with a bit of luck there's more on it's way through the winter and into March.

Hay Jay, I think there is a LARGE indoor ski/snowboard park over there and you could snowboard year round. I like to ski, but I have to give it up, I am on the verg of blowing out my knee, and hurting my lower back. I'm old at 23 :!: :!: :cry: :cry:
