Snow stops play (again)

Actually it started on Monday when about 3 inches settled here.  There followed a couple of rather cold days (-6C on Thursday morning) before more fell on Thursday evening.  A rather more enthisiastic fall began yesterday afternoon and has continued on and off since then.
I was meant to be at a Funny Little Wars game in West Yorkshire today but it was called off last night as people coming from further south couldn't make it.  So I've done some painting instead.

Funny Little Wars you say? Sounds spiffing and one hopes the game takes place soon.

I expect I could have got there - but sometimes it's best not to try. So it's back to torturing more Tratvians with the paintbrush!

I was going to give you a hard time, but that does actually looking kind of wintery and I know that Brits can't handle winter driver. However, in case you feel hard done by here's the local weather in Regina.

And I walk to work most day. Stay warm and dry.
Cheers

Nice looking snow covered cars. They look most realistic.

The dry brushing took ages...

Nick Grant said...

Oh my! As a bit of a contrast, it was 30 degrees Celsius here yesterday!

As I said to PD, nobody likes a showoff.

I'm meant to seeing clients later - I'd best give some thought to extracting a car...

It's all very picturesque
