Snow kidding

The country was on high weather alert yesterday. Big storm coming--batten down the hatches. Snow! For a country that gets snow maybe once a year, it was big news.

What struck me immediately from the photos was the lack of large trees. Granted that the pics aren't a full panorama.

(its a joke) - but at the moment they aren't in session anyway.

Also gave me a chuckle to see the WeatherPixie with an xmas tree - which is what Pixies in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and any other place in the world are standing next to at the moment.

I'm jealous. We've had no snow or hope of snow yet. Hopefully, we'll have a bit for the girls to play in. :)
