Snow!

Recommended Posts

This is true. Its really the difference between the Scottish and English psyche. In England, there are folks year round, laughing heartily, enjoying themselves, "Snow? No fear! Hahahaha". "Now, lets enjoy ourselves and take life one step at a time, look at that sunshine!"

Fast forward a few months, the skies cloud over, and..."jesus! Whats that white stuff in the sky??". Cue the country grinding to a halt, 82 car pile ups, vital services disrupted, and thats all before the snow actually starts.

Meanwhile in Scotland, there are people squinting up in the summer sky, "It'll never last, we'll pay for this!". Winter holds no fear for us, our soul is by default darker than the winter gloom. 8)

I love that. It is funny cause it's etc.etc.etc.

It is - and if you look closely through the French windows, you'll see the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree. :D

God I am getting all childlike again. I love this snow as well!

:rolleyes:

Believe it or not, this didn't cost a huge amount as it was practically derelict when we got it.

What we've spent on it since mind you...................... :o

You're one of us now! One of us! One of us! :D

Presumably, when you go back down to England, you take a stash of Royal Bank of Scotland notes, mutter about the temperature, and look on with scorn at their soft, decadent lifestyles? Oh, and while you are perfectly happy to make friends with foreigners, you regard other Englishers with deep suspicion?

Or have I just exposed myself as a horrible racist?

Yes, you have. Exuberant was right about you.

You, however, were very close to being right on one small point: I make absolutely no effort to get English notes and am ready with the defence of "That's legal tender" (even though it's not) every time I try and spend one. :D

Started snowing here about 8pm, just put my head out of the door and there's now about 3 1/2 inches on the ground, and it's still coming down very heavily.

Fecking typical. Everywhere except a few places on the west side of Scotland get snow :rolleyes:

Here's an idea - why doesn't everyone who hates snow move to Paisley, and those of us who like it will move to the north/east south ;)
