Snow....

Post  Roz on Thu Feb 25, 2010 7:52 pm

Don't know about you guys, but I'm proper snowed in.
Was hoping to be playing in the 90, but it won't look at it, 6ft drifts all over the place, just impossible to get moving!

Well, that was one of the most savage snow storms I've seen for a while!

Not even a roof rack mate!
That's the result of two days of non stop snow and savage wind!
Difficult to measure exact deapth as it's blown and drifted so much, but in 3 different sheltered areas I've measured 30 inches...

I'm sorted Steve, my 90 is fully functional again so it'll take more snow than this to stop me getting out to buy beer!!!
