White Christmas?

Well nearly.  At around 1830 yesterday a sleet shower turned to snow and began to settle.  The photo above shows the motor pool at Megablitz Towers at around 2300.  Fortunately we were at home and - dog walking excepted - didn't have to be anywhere today.  I gather that central Sheffield was gridlocked with the added bonus of a power cut.
 Above:  this was the situation at 1900.  Below: and at 2130.
Meanwhile in the parallel universe that is Little Cold Wars the roads were kept open by this splendid Simca Sumb snowplough which came with a collection of Solido military die casts I recently acquired.  It even has snow chains on the wheels.

No snow in Edinburgh (yet!) though 'tis verrrry cold :)

Go to the Funny Little Wars Yahoo site to see photos and a seasonal message from Svenhasselstein. The snow arrived in the principality at exactly the same time that it landed in Anston. It is now clean and crisp and even. :-)

I gather it's been a bit chilly north of you - I hope it doesn't get any worse.

We were forecast to have more yesterday but it didn't really happen. Not much sign of a thaw though...

The same time eh? What a coincidence!

I suppose you'll want me to replace the plastic show chains with metal chains as well?
