    I don't know. I've wondered that many times myself. I totally agree on the second part, that's why I recommend buying your fave wine by the case when you go on vacation...at least that's what I do.

    Horrible.
    I HATE our bi-polar weather here. If it weren't for family & the farm that I don't owe a dime on I would be headed south in a hot minute!

    If you laugh at the snow predictions and the panic iyt causes then you need to come to the UK.
    2 inches of the white stuff and the whole country comes to a standstill!

    Not since the 1970s have we had what I cal 'snow' whereby there are feet deep drifts. The last few winters when we have had snow it has basically been gentle snow fall and lying evenly to about a foot maximum in depth.
    This means that majority of cars are useless, this means that people forget they have legs and can walk!

    LAst time we had really deep snow I was caught out at a dinner dance. It was a shock when we went out to leave to find 2 feet of snow. I managed to drive to the edge of the town and knew that there was no way I would get home (steep hills into my town) so turned around and went to stay at my cousins.
    Being in a long dress and the most impractical shoes with a lightweight jacket, is not the best at 2 a.m. In a blizzard!
    I had an old sheepskin coat in the back of my car and a pair of size 14 men;s riding boots so I donned them.
    I had about 4 hours sleep at cousins. Borrowed some jeans and a sweater off her husband and set out a 6 a.m. To walk the three miles home.
    That was OK until I was going down the hill into town then the boot acted like uncontrollable skis whereby I could not bend my knees because the length was above my knees!

    At home I ate a good breakfast, changed and set off to walk four miles in the opposite direction to feed some yearlings.
    On the way there a farmer friend had the snow drift and blow down the fencing keeping his lambing ewes in a big barn so majority of them had escaped.

    I fed the youngsters, walked back to help with the sheep and by the time we had got them all back I was totally exhausted. I then walked the three miles further to get home.
    I had been working in deep drifts for about 10 hours.
    I get indoors, eat and then cousin, her hubby, my sister and my father went tobogganing!
