    Thumbs up Snow surprise

    we have a lot of snow in the UK, we don't normally get much in depth, but its come from up north.
    its cold out and windy with the odd flutter storm,
    just shone an led light out of window and seen a beautiful array of sparkling snow flakes carpeting the ground,
    not seen that amount of sparkle before with an ordinary torch.
    amazing

    Hello! We normally get a few snows a winter where I live in North Carolina. True to form, we've had 2 good size snows this year. Hoping that we see NO more. I am usually ready for winter to be done by the day after Christmas. Certainly not looking forward to that 4 letter word again until next year. However . . . we've been having some blackberry winter and that is never a good sign. Let's just say, you can enjoy the beauty of your snow and I will enjoy it right along with you. Smiles!

    Who is making the blackberry wine?
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    ROFLMBBO !! Maybe it is a colloquial term. Blackberry winter is when before the seasons change and you get some unseasonably warm weather - warm enough to make the wild blackberries bloom or at least green up. Lots of that action around here lately. And Sandy! I've made elderberry wine with my granny before - never was able to keep from eating the blackberries to make up anything except a small cobbler.

    We have 6" of snow and a bitter easterly wind and the temperature is around -4C but feels much colder!! The snow when it was falling on Monday was pretty but after the 3rd consecutive day it has lost beauty!!

    Really want to make beef casseroles and stews but don't have a kitchen at the moment (it's being refurbished) so bought a large bar of chocolate instead!!

    Sort of the opposite of what we call indian summer here in new england...unseasonably warm weather after a frost in autumn.
