I realise I am being selfish but the snow made everything quieter and my well-being improved as a result.
Yes, I missed hearing the birds singing but I did not miss the assault of man-made noise. At least the rain kept the latter at bay for today.
Me too. I love love love the idea of colder climates. I just haven’t got there yet. I usually end up in Australia or Bali or India at the height of its dry season and heat! Lol! I’ll get to a cold place one of these days :)
Here's one of my favourite poems about snow. It says so much in so few words, and encapsulates the experience...
Yeah, I like that.

To "BlueRay"... Try heading North. That might help. (...)
....To all else who may read, and to CareTwo of course... Rain is also amusing sometimes, only through seeing the amount of persons who hide underneath porches waiting for it to "stop", forgetting that this is the UK, and that one should *always* carry an umbrella even in July, yes indeed...
I live about as far North as it's possible to get (in the UK) and we've had no more than a centimetre of snow throughout this whole 'Beast from the East' period. Also, no-one here (apart from tourists) carry umbrellas - there's no point as they don't last more than 5 minutes in the winds up here. It can be pretty funny watching the tourists attempt to use umbrellas though!!
