still snowing!

okay, i suspect this is one of those i care much more than anybody else things, but it's still snowing! everything is covered! last night the library was closed and the buses cancelled. i gave up studying at about midnight and went for a walk around in the snow (wearing so many layers i could only move in a very limited fashion). it was so beautiful. all the grotty teenagers were out making enormous snowmen and having vicious snowball fights, and the uni snowplows were doing the rounds (for serious! they have the school logo on the side!).

but today the inty is down. aaargh! so i am up at grad computer lounge. after i print off a draft of my essay i'm going to put all my layers back on and waddle off the little supermarket to see if they have the paper. lots of photos to put up once the internet connection at res comes back alive.

zero degrees and snowing

Looks fantastic. Seems to be bucketing down.
As a commited skier, I need to ask - How much snow has fallen? It seemed to be falling straight down and not be wind driven yes/no? Looks like excellent snow, big and soft. Bit too soft to ski on in Van, but obviously must be heaps up the mountains.
Three days of snow - wow!
Three days, man, three days. (Woodstock)
Will it stay on the ground for a long time now? Will wash away quickly once it resumes raining.

hey lian looks lovely & reminds me of how i felt when holidaying at whistler all those christmasses ago, it just got colder and colder then one weekend it just started dumping beautiful soft snow and didn't stop for three days, very spesh for an australian who hardly sees the stuff.
so am thinking stupidly warm things would be a nice chrissie pressie (if santa doesn't rock up with the sleigh to bring the vortex over)? sar

What's all this nonsense about Beautiful Snow??????
In the video it did look nice and I guess it is beautiful..... because it is over there and I'm over here in the heat!!!
37 today - yaaay!

gtg said...

thankyou, grotty.

gtg said...

sorry, bbb, don't know. i would probably find out by looking it up on the interweb. though will try and buy the paper today. dunno if goods are making it up the mountain and i'm not game to go down in case they cancel the buses again! eee!

i have seen lots of people heading off with snowboards, and there are small children with tobogans and boogie boards everywhere.

it is excellent snow. lovely and soft. no shine of it moving from the ground so far, and it's predicted to stay this cold (ie. below zero) for a couple of days yet. we shall see.

gtg said...

hi anonymous sar! how are you?

gosh, it would have been beautiful up at whistler, i can just imagine.

i do feel very australian, especially as i am wandering round in full thermals plus woollens plus hat with earflaps, etc. etc. and there are ratty teenagers in short skirts and thongs. it's below zero, people!

stupidly warm things would be an ace chrissy present, but you'd have to get a wriggle on! did you get my email? would much prefer the sleigh. tell the man in red (ie mao). thankyou!

gtg said...

you're silly, jt!

37 is a bit yucky. dunno if i would prefer that or hte minus four conditions i am currently in. the particularly joyful bit, though, is being able to watch it from inside, ie. next to a heater with a nice cup of coffee.

glad you thought it was beautiful.

gtg said...

okay bbb, now i have my widgets back i can tell you there's 57" of powder at the base of whistler and it's a heady -14 degrees. wheeee. . .

gtg said...

nope, updated version:

65" at the base.
