Let it snow, let it snow let it.............STOP!!!!!

I hate snow. End of story.

As I was telling my friends earlier, coming from the UK, I didn't really have to worry about getting to places if it snowed. We would get about a half inch of snow per Winter - if that! - so driving was no problem, when my car wasn't being stolen (another story for later).

But then, I moved over to the U.S.

You guys here get A LOT of snow.

By a lot, I mean if it snows three flakes, there is an inch or so on the ground.

This sucks.

I'm uselss at driving in this stuff. I almost knocked over a bunch of school kids waiting for their school bus this morning.

We had a Winter Watch last night on TV but a) watches mean nothing, and b) we never get hit unless it's an actual all out warning.

But then, this morning I wake up to my bedroom being lit up like it's midday, and upon looking out of the windows, was hit with the following scenes:

Its getting bloody worse! Even the squirrels are cold!

Bloody Nora!

Here is Dan going to school in the stuff and his school parking lot!

THEN I look at the weather on the computer, and see this!

Winter Watch Weather Snow clouds over Cleveland

I can tell you now, I tried driving in this at lunchtime and was ALL OVER THE ROAD! I came home and almost crashed into my garage doors in a failed attempt to park in my driveway.

Folks, all I can say is that I will now be housebound until Spring - or until I can get a lift from people to and from work.

Send supplies in form of tea-bags, pieclets and shepherds pie.

See you when the snow melts!
