December NaBloPoMo

Unlike Wendy, Sarah and Karen, I haven't signed up  but I will attempt a post per day.

The theme for December is ZEITGEIST. You have 31 days to try to capture the mood of your culture and your life as they exist right now. Use every tool in your blog box: words, photos, music...?

The British Isles is once again in the grip of snow and ice. Other parts of the World function fine no matter what the Weather. Health and Safety consciousness here hog-ties us almost into immobility!

Schools closed, Gatwick and other airports closed, flights and travel disrupted. Facebook is 'full' of friends displaying their snow pictures and wondering in they dare travel anywhere.

Twitter updates too have people saying they're "not going anywhere" because of the  

Some greet the snow and ice joyfully, others moan and groan. Morning TV programmes e.g. Lorraine ask for pictures from viewers.

Numerous sites have sprung up listing school closures 

However, I looked for Merseyside and...No School Closures for Liverpool, St. Helens, Cheshire or the Wirral. Guess where there's little snow!.

Twitter friends too claim they're 'not going anywhere' because of...the Snow!

We saw your weather on the news here in the USA. Snow n ice can shut down places in the blink of an eye. Hope it melts real fast!

Looks like this wintry weather's here to stay for a while. Am thankful we are far better of than most because there's little snow here.

But the best thing is you don't have to follow the theme - I'm not! I thought you'd signed up, no wonder I couldn't find you on there! lol

Oops Wendy I find it awkward to sign up for stuff especially new sites.
