Tringle, I think that's a super challenge!

No idea yet how I might find something to enter, but plenty to think about.

Simon

P.S. Saturday's snow was picturesque. But it's still coming down now - 18" or more evenly all over, and still too much falling to allow photography, and no chance of traveling other than on foot anyway...

We've got snow forecast for overnight tonight. We'll see. Apparently 60kms north of here is already covered and there are some power lines down.

I'm sure you'll think of something.

You lucky devil - we`ve only got a fresh inch or so but maybe more today. Aiming to get out wlaking or maybe drive to a local park with my favourite tree in it - sad isn`t it! I have a favourite tree :D

All we've had is a very light dusting.  :'(

But, there is hope for Tuesday and Wednesday.  :tup:

Well I was going to put a sun lounger in the garden, get a cocktail made , umbrella up and sip on a cocktail in a snowscene.However my wife`s school is closed and playtime has ended and jobs around the house instructions abound so I will settle for this one from yesterdays walk to get things started:

Curses jinky  :D

 A similar idea to the one I was thinking of (sun lounger, cocktail etc), except that I couldn't think of a way of getting any snow  :'(

Sorry, Tringle and Jinky, but I hope you don't think I've stolen your idea!  But I've had my eye on the neighbours' patio furniture since the theme was announced and just waiting for the right climatic conditions.  My wish was granted this morning!  I can't believe this stuff hasn't blown away.  We've had gale force winds from Siberia, our plants are dead from wind chill, our chairs have blown over and yet their all their furniture remains firmly cemented in place.

It`s the thought that will have come to everyone`s mind that is blessed with snow. But I don`t see you in  your swimsuit sunbathing here  ;)

didn't think that I would get an entry in this week but I came across this trainer left in the snow near the cricket pitch and took the opportunity

Trust me, you wouldn't want to see me in a swimsuit at any time!  I think it might have been all those awful holiday snaps that prompted me to take up photography in the first place.  If I'm behind it I can't be in front of it!

Managed to get something - not what I was hoping for, but hey ho.

As I have an appointment with the dentist tomorrow morning, poll will be up a little late, sorry.
