Snowjoke.

Well the forecasters managed to predict a cold blast from the continent, bringing along with it heavy snow. It was forecast to hit the north east coast of England today. They were not wrong. As I write I see huge flakes flashing by my window. Whipped by a biting wind they race by, caught in the glow of my outside lamp I see a blizzard.We receive such little snow these days, it seems something of a novelty.

But come the morrow no doubt half the country shall be paralyzed, brought to a standstill by snowflakes.
Images of impassable highways, of people stranded in freezing conditions and I am sure somewhere in England, some poor pensioner shall perish from hypothermia or malnutrition (it happens). Energy prices are crippling people.

The price of electricity is linked to the price of oil. The price of oil has plummeted, so how can the energy companies be allowed to continually "rip off" the population with such disregard for decency.
Riddle me that Mr Brown. !!!

  1. Hi Kenny. The painting of my toenails wasn’t for my date – but rather for the trip to the shore – we have a tradition where we take a picture of our feet in the sand every year.And besides, this was only the second date and while there is definitely a physical attraction, I would really like to get to know him better before being served breakfast in bed.Peace

I did consider wearing a yellow rooster costume, but decided against it as I was too chicken…boom boom!Take care Kenny, have a good weekend mateall the best woof woof !

    Hello Kenneth,Good to hear from you my friend. Yes, I did see pictures of the snows that hit England. especially London. And no snowplows on top of it. i didn’t realize that you really didn’t have great amounts of snow these past few years. I had expected that you’d probably have as much snow as we did, but not the case. We have about 6 or 8 inchs of the dirty kind still on the ground. There is nothing that looks uglier than dirty old snow.At this point I’m really looking for spring to come. I can hardly wait to feel the warm sun on my body and smell the fresh earth. I’m afraid it will take another six weeks before I can even begin to think of that and when it does come, it will probably be just a teaser for a day or two. We can’t get our hands into the soil until late May unless we take the chance of a frost. But we can decide those things later. So how are you my friend? I’m sure you are eager to get out in the boat and catch a few trout and maybe some cod if you are really adventurous. Or was it sea bass? You take care and will talk soon. Bittersweet

  9. OH how I wish I could have a dog. But as you so astutley observed, I’m not home enough to care for one – and I am a very responsible pet owner – I would want to give them plenty of attention.I’m not all that busy with dating, things have slowed down in the winter months and that’s fine as I have lots of homework to get done. I can’t believe it’s only three months until I graduate!Be well, enjoy the weekend. Peace

  12. Well Kenny, have you gotten all the snow cleared from your paths? The roads are dry here as the sun has been out both yesterday and today. By the weekend the temps will be in the high 40’s – yay!No worries, I’m not planning on lowering my standards – thus I may not find my partner for a long while. Good things come to those who wait, as the saying goes.Peace

  16. I’ve heard from acquaintence in England that you got quite a snowfall – he said it took him 2 1/2 hours to walk to work in the snow. If I had to walk for 2/12 hours I’d have given up after 15 minutes!Stay warm. Peace

  17. The roads here were very bad this morning with heavy snow falling onto un-gritted roads which were already packed with frozen snow that had fallen during the night; it took me a long time to get to the college where I work…. I passed two buses struggling to get back onto the main road after skidded sideways, partially blocking the carriageway, and after all the effort, the college sent everyone home early…so I had the journey all over again…At leaste this afternoon I can gaze at it and appreciate how beautiful it looks through my window….
