It is snowing heavy here in Merthyr Tydfil and has been since about 8pm. If it continues like this we will have more by tomorrow morning than we did this morning. Main roads are trecherous and reports on facebook of cars sliding.

Did the same as you Sandie and cleared all the paths 2 days running.

Alyson xx

Just looked at forecast for next 3 days. Every hour (day and night) from now till Sat morning it is a minus. Not much chance of too much more snow - but little chance of it clearing either.

Weekend sees the beginning of plus temps 24/7 - but not above 7C anytime up till next Thursday. Dryish, and should feel like a "heatwave" after all this snow and ice :-)

Having my perm and set on Saturday - staying in till then ;-)

How do you know Ann ?....... You have contacts or something ?
The avatar shows a fine head of hair...


JustJohn Report 22 Jan 2013 23:36

AnnC. I do have a fine head of hair. I don't need to accompany my hair when I get it cut and shaped :-) But it is red, long and luscious ;-)

Edited as I don't want to upset anybody important.

Oh blinking heck I

My dad had gingery / blond hair and my mothers cousin used to taunt him...
Ginger for pluck the red headed duck.

Mum used to laugh her head off at it,..the quotation.... cousin was a bit odd.

My niece and nephew have ginger hair, niece has dyed it blonde.

Flipping eck it's your manner and personality what counts not your hair colour.

I am ...oops sorry ..was brunette .

Edit ..I'm not important.


JustJohn Report 22 Jan 2013 23:59

Sandie. Yes, I was "sandy" when young. And I heard that "ginger for pluck". It was good to have ginger hair in those days. None of the teasing that "gingas" get these days.

OH is blondish - still a very good colour. Children both have reddish hair, but quite a nice colour - not my ginger. My bits now have very little ginger left ;-)

I thought this was the snow thread not a snow on the roof thread (with a dead fire in the hearth) :-D

Lol Sue....
Push off.....

John and were just talking about hair colour,

Can be a very sensitive subject, I know what my original colour was as I had it cut and have kept the tress,,dau thinks it is 'gross'.to do such a thing.

Her friend has straight blonde hair and it is right down to the floor..,she does tie it up sometimes ,but gets really awkward looks from peeps when she doesn't..

I'll go grey gracefully sometime ;-)


JustJohn Report 23 Jan 2013 08:55

So personal Sue. I know that dead fire in the hearth jibe was at me. I think I am the only mail poster to have a dead fire. All the other men at least talk about their fire a lot :-( :-( :-( ;-)


AnnCardiff Report 23 Jan 2013 09:54

mail poster??????

well it stopped snowing here around 3:00 am but has now started yet again - have had to cancel a long awaited get together with some ex colleagues from the sixties - we all worked together at Freeman's cigar factory here in Cardiff - Manikin - we were so looking forward to it, but not possible today - we're dong it again next Wednesday - hopefully

Just finshed digging out the drive for the second time and amazingly a snow plough went past. First time I have seen one in years around here :-)
