***SNOWPOCALYPSE 2013***


Recommended Posts

Really, March? Really? Is this the best you can do?

 

This place was featured in a famous Thief fan mission. It is covered by snow now.

A trellis. Snow has buried it. The pine tree doesn't seem to like the snow either.

"The City of Mediterranean Impressions" (no kidding, that's our marketing slogan), main street. If the picture appears blurry, it is because there is a snowstorm going on. Snow is sometimes falling upwards due to the wind tunnel effect.

...and Yours Truly after some shoveling, and before a whole lot of tea:

What I meant to say, there is a lot of snow around here today.

Not around here, at least nothing this severe.

Thanks for sharing. =)

 

By my country's standards that isn't very much of snow. At present there is easily knee deep snow layer in areas that have not been cleared. And the snow has been melting and compacting a bit during the last weeks.

Looks like my backyard... ;) Imagine clearing all those paths with a snow pusher. That's what I've been doing this winter. And last winter. And the winter before that...

What surprises me the most is that you look absolutely NOTHING like I imagined :blink:

Most people here will not look like their avatars. :P (In your case I really hope so :D )

LOL That's my mental image of Obsttorte as well.

 

And I don't look like my avatar anymore, since I filed my horns a little

Okay, it's hard to compete with SeriousToni's picture (and anyone from Finland would probably win over that). Actually, it's not the amount of snow that surprised me (it happens, although it's not common), but the storm itself. I took the pictures in a relatively calm period; when I was going home from work, visibility was way lower.

 

Also, I am now starting to wonder how people pictured me. Probably nothing like my old avatar (which is a Hammerite icon).

I would never had thought that you have a beard (and no perlwig). :smile:

Hah! I instantly recognized that first picture! :D

Well, we have the same stuff here in France, but since I live 2 kilometers from the Mediterranean we still have the sun, but lots of wind lately. However some of my friends living further north don't even have power in their homes and the snow has been a pain in the ass for a lot of people.

Well here in the UK that would quite rightly be considered a "Snowtastrophe", all its takes here is a few inches and airports grind to a halt.

 

Melan I feel your pain, but conversely enjoy the few days off :-)

Here in the middle of Canada we've already had our average (110 cm) and we still have another month or so to go :( . Were suppose to get more again this weekend. So tired of it. Oh well, we at least know that someday it will melt and sweet glorious summer will put in an all to brief appearance but long enough to get us through the next winter. (One can hope :smile: ). Having some trouble posting and wanted to add that my avatar does look like me in fact when I see myself in a mirror during a mission I have to stop and wonder who that is. :laugh:

Funny thing is, I *do* look like my avatar :D
