Don't know what I am going to do if the snow settles, Meg hates the rain and avoids puddles like the plague !!

Not sure how she is going to handle snow at all, still should be fun finding out :lol1:

I hate the stuff. 12 years ago a lady living across the road woke up stunned to find my old vauxhall cavalier on her garden in bits. She did have a really nice garden fence before that. :oops:

Lynn I love your dogs. Martin, your puppy is getting big!
In 1993 we had the only blizzard in my lifetime (the one before that was in the 1950s)
We had about 23" of snow which drifted into 6' in some places.
My elderly (not the crazy one) neighbor was walking home from Mass one mile away and was knocked over by the flume of snow off the plow truck, and froze to death.
His body was not found till the snow started to thaw a week or so later.
Love...Jill

I don't knows Peter. Global warming maybe. Talk to Phill :D

All I know is that, forty or more years ago, we used to get snowfall so that people couldn't get up the hill in the next village. As a twelve year old in a Land Rover I made a fortune pulling them up at ten shillings each. The police weren't so hot on under-age driving in the late sixties either. :D

Nobody has been stuck on that same hill for years now. :(

We have had a very light dusting tonight (all gone now) and, I hope I'm wrong, but I don't expect any more this year.

But you see it's your old Landrover that has caused all this in the first place. If you hadn't gone polluting the atmosphere with all that Co2 from your old Landrover back in the 60's we would never have had all this global warming now would we *hair*

John,
I was referring to why you want to drive in deep snow, rather than to why we don't get it anymore.

Oh, right. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

It's just fun.

Top Gear style heroics at a safe low speed, if you like.

I just enjoy trying to control a vehicle, especially a big heavy one, in adverse circumstances. Snow is better than mud because the car doesn't need so much cleaning afterwards. :D



Phill, sorry mate, but we just didn't know back then. Nobody told us.

My only mitigation is that my Landy had a petrol engine rather than the nasty polluting 2.2 BMC diesel that was the only option in those days. :D

Well, I was wrong. We're getting quite a bit more snow this morning.

Cars are still moving though, so I'll wait for a while before finding an excuse to go into town. :D
