England moaning 2" of snow

Well winter arrived a few weeks back. Soctland just carried on as normal. English just moaned about everything. Plane travellers moaned about ploughing runways and deicing aircraft. Why moan airport and airlines put passenger safety first. Id rather be late leaving than not get there. Had a similar event 10 years ago when i was at vancover airport. 3 hour delay. At 2am but aircraft we were due to board had one of its engines removed. Glad they found fault at ground level rather than 35000+ feet over north alantic. Just cant please people. Scots where stuck on a ferry for 24 hours waiting for a drop in wind speed and waves to dock safely. Their response was we were well looked after beds and food provided. This was on what should of been a 1hour crossing. Go figure that one out.

Xist — We're headed into the gray season. We rely on it to drive the wayward Californian back South.

But it's not. Hereabouts it's sunny and in the '50s. Have to go ride the horse instead of skiing. And got up a bit of a sweat with just a sweatshirt on.

My cupholder's by the A pillar. The coffee steams, the fan blows the steam along the window, where in extreme cold weather it condenses.

This morning it froze on the inside of the window. After I had enough heat to take off my hat and gloves.
