A Beautiful place!
Won't the dogs get frost bite on their feet and nuts from too long in snow? Just a dumb question cause I seriously don't know if it can happen to them as well.

I imagine they would do, but they weren't out for that long, the temp is only about -4c so not really that cold, unless you laid down in it for a few hours, all 4 dogs have been having a great time bouncing around outside.

All the schools are closed, most airports including Gatwick and Heathrow, locally the buses are not running, many trains are cancelled too.

I tried to phone them just now but no answer, I guess they outside having a ball. They were so excited yesterday with about 1cm of snow I can just imagine how much fun they having now.

Is that your new house Viper?
No, that's where my folks live. My kids are adamant they want a double storey :( Oh well, at least the stairs will be a bit of exercise for me :p

I must say, I hate a double story, at times I leave my cigarettes upstairs while im down, and damn it's such an effort to walk those stairs, especially before going to bed
Then stop smoking Vogue:p

I would like to run around and dive in that snow Mike.Apparently most guys at our London office have been told that they could stay home today because of the weather:pDamn wish it was me!

There's not many at work today, the overground trains were cancelled, as are buses - even the underground trains can't run (over 60% of the tube trains start outside London as overground and only go moling near central London)

And all the kids are diving in the snow, it is great fun.
