How's the snow for everyone else? No more overnight, and strong winds, so it's finally starting to clear here. My bro in Wrexham has 2 feet though

dominicm09:03:00

That bad in Wrexham? Ouch. (I'm grew up in that part of the country!)

dominicm09:03:06

I should check on my parents 🙂

yogidevbear09:03:02

Snow also starting to dissipate down in West Sussex

yogidevbear09:03:15

There's more green than white

danm09:03:09

Oops, typo

danm09:03:28

2 feet, not 3. And because of his driveway that is probably significant drifting

thomas09:03:57

next to no snow here in :flag-nl: a tiny bit earlier in the week, but it didn't last. And I haven't seen anyone iceskating (yet)

thomas09:03:18

but I have heard that it is possible in some places

dominicm10:03:52

Because of drift my parents are reporting snow "up to as deep as wellies, but low in other places"

mccraigmccraig10:03:36

there's about 1.5m sitting on top of the better insulated roofs here

otfrom10:03:44

too much wind and snow too dry to stay on roofs here this week

otfrom10:03:29

we've been getting about 1-3cm every 2-3 hrs with a break in between so just no way to clear it and keep it clear

thomas15:03:36

well... TM (the PM) has given yet another speech... and still no concrete proposal on how it all should work... no surprises there then... please move on... nothing to see here....

thomas15:03:49

so much for being creative.

dominicm16:03:51

@carr0t I have discovered that my dog enjoys destroying snowballs. It's very entertaining to watch.

dominicm16:03:57

So I also have a dog who eats snow now

danm16:03:36

Yeah, I have some vids of mine catching them now 🙂

dominicm16:03:57

My dog lets treats, balls and toys hit his head. I don't think I'll be able to replicate that.

otfrom17:03:29

snowballs are a great way of teaching dogs dialectical materialism

mccraigmccraig18:03:05

do i need to grok dialectical materialism myself to teach it to dogs through the medium of snowballs?

otfrom18:03:04

take 2 snowballs

otfrom18:03:12

one in each hand

otfrom18:03:23

one is the thesis

otfrom18:03:38

the other is the antithesis

otfrom18:03:45

smash them together for the synthesis

otfrom18:03:34

decide whether or not you want to feed your new synthesis into the maw of nature (your dog) as a way of showing how pitiful and small humans are in an uncaring universe (sorry, that went a bit existential)
