snow!

Young Angus takes a look at the snow
and doesn't seem too sure. . .

this is the car park at work, shortly after this it started to melt and turn to yucky slushy stuff. the local roads and traffic all ground to a halt, not being able to cope. . happens every time!

Gee Claire, if that's what you call snow you should see it over here. I wish I could've taken pictures tonight when I did my "taxi" impersonation, but it was too dark out. The roads were horrible and it was still snowing. I'll take some tomorrow if I remember.

Angus, hang in there, I'm sure you'll love it just a little later on in life!

Dan said...

One Angus starts school he'll love snow!

Kerri said...

Oh look at those lovely rosy cheeks! He's a little doll :)
One thing about NY is we're well equipped to handle snow. I remember being amazed after the blizzard we had in '93. The very next day most of our roads were clear...with huge snow banks! I was so impressed.
The birds are busy at the feeders this morning.

Looks brutal Claire. Too bad it all melted to slush. Nice to note that Angus is properly atired for the weather. Many kids around here still come to school wearing shorts as if they lived in the tropics. They get a rude shock when forced out at recess...

He's beautiful. Give him another year and he'll be out there rolling in the nasty stuff.

I love snow - anyplace except here.

Alice, yes I knw its only a wee bit of snow compared to some, furhter north in scotland they have heaps of the stuff. definatley you should post some photos of your snow!
Wildside, the problem is it didn't lay long enough for him to get used to it.
Dan, he is going to be a mammy's boy and not get involved in snowball fights.
Kerri, central Scotland grinds to a halt at a sniff of snow, you think they'd catch onto it eventually. I think the rosy cheeks are teething, not the cold1
Michael, brutal? em, not really. . .not like your ultra chilly! young Angus will be well provided with outdoor gear, it'll be a drysuit next!
Granny, thats it, for next year, once he's learned to walk, he'll get kitted out in waterproof stuff and let loose!!

Michael said...

LOL Claire! At his age, Angus need only wear the drysuit shorts... ;-)

Nature Girl said...

Beautiful ~*angels*~ in both this and last post! =^.^= NG

clairesgarden said...

Michael, I'll suggest that to his mum.
Nature girl, sure they are not that angelic sometimes! I like your wee symbol cat, =^.^= , I'll have to remeber how to do that.

Imma (a.k.a. ... Alice) said...

I also really like Nature Girls cat... =^.^= Way cool.

I posted pictures of snow on my blog now Claire, so you can go take a look. I envy you only getting the amount of snow you do. I like snow okay, but I wish it would stay off my driveway, and the highway when I'm driving on it, haha.
