    it is indeed a beauty site to see snow,but sometimes annoying when you want do stuff.
    and when its all cleared and say your in car at night with head light beams on,you see like crystal glittery on the road surface because of the ice.

    You want the snow to leave? WHY!?!?!

    Got the week off college, been sliding down hills. It brings the best out in people. Snow rules! Beats epic sun.

    *Iam a skier however.

    Moonpig, I'm still on christmas holidays! People are demanding of me if I've got a contingency plan for if the train to london on friday is cancelled due to the snow, no I haven't got a bloody plan B.
    Snow is good if you live near your mates and a decent hill which hasn't had the snow compacted too badly, hmmm, thursday afternoon I might organise some bin bagging :).

    i want it to leave just because i want my driving lesson and my parents can go to work earn money and give me pocket money.

    Only thing i like about snow is no school but then its not snowing right now in my town.

    Well according to BBC weather it snow again on Saturday and Sunday in my area and more next week.
    So i am having a guess it just keep getting worse,roads are already dangerous at this minute.

    I have just noticed various websites selling i3 now,think its worth the money?? lol.

    snow's still about 4 inches thick here and there's more snow forecast for the weekend.

    This post is really just an excuse to post this awesome sat pic of the UK taken on the 7/1/10 :

    Best snow in my lifetime by far (22 years), i hope we get more tbh (as long as it doesn't delay my nexus one delivery as it did my 5970 :shadedshu )
