Default The snow is falling...hard, and

It's too cold to work in the garage so I spent the day in front of the fire sharpening the chisels and planes. There never seems to be the time to do that.

That is an excellent way to spend that kind of day. Not much else to do anyhow.

Sounds like a relaxing day provided you don't have to go out in it!! Where are you from?

There is deep snow here in Manchester, well 3", but that is too deep for the trains to run. The canal has frozen and the roads are not salted or have not been cleared. The airport is closed, trains are stuck in the channel tunnel, but that is the u.k., If we are no flooded, we are snowbound. So much for global warming. A white Xmas is on the cards but not on the tv. Still snowing.

Yes but this is England. We don't do extreme weather here, apart from 12" of rainfall in a day and 133mph gales that ripped down so many trees in '88. It is still snowing. The temperature is at -5C, this is quite cold for us. It is sunday here, monday will probably be at a standstill apart from the postman on his bike.
