      Snow, Snow, Thick Thick Snow

      DEC 16th

      It's starting to snow. The first of the season and the first we've

      seen for years. The wife and I took our hot toddies and sat on the porch

      watching the fluffy snow flakes drift gently down clinging to the trees

      and covering the ground. It's so beautiful and peaceful.

      DEC 17th.

      We awoke to a lovely blanket of crystal white glistening snow

      covering as far as the eye could see. What a fantastic sight, every tree

      and bush covered with a beautiful white mantle. I shovelled snow for the

      first time ever and loved it. I did both our driveway and pavement.

      Later that day a snowplough came along and accidentally covered up

      our driveway with compacted snow from the street. The driver smiled and
      waved. I waved back and shovelled it away again. The children next door

      built a snowman with coal for eyes and a carrot for a nose, and had a

      snowball fight, a couple just missed me and hit the car so I threw a

      couple back and joined in their fun.

      DEC 18th.

      It snowed an additional 5 inches last night and the temperature

      dropped to around minus 8 degrees. Several branches on our trees and

      bushes snapped due to the weight of snow. I shovelled our driveway again.
      Shortly afterwards the snowplough came by and did his trick again. Much of

      the snow is now a brownish-grey.

      Dec 19th.

      Warmed up enough during the day to create some slush which soon

      became ice when the temperature dropped again. Bought snow tyres for both

      our cars 500. Fell on my a*se in the driveway. 100 to a physio but nothing
      was broken.

      DEC 20th.

      Still cold. Sold the wife's car and bought her a 4x4 to get her to

      work. She slid into a wall and did considerable damage to the right wing -

      200. Had another 8 inches of white sh*te last night. Both vehicles are

      re-covered in salt and iced up slush. That b*stard snowplough came by

      twice today. Where's that bl*ody shovel.

      DEC 21st

      More F*****G snow. Not a tree or bush in our property that hasn't

      been damaged. Power was off most of the night. Tried to keep from freezing

      to death with candles and a paraffin heater which tipped over and nearly

      torched the house. I managed to put the flames out but suffered 2nd degree

      burns on my hands. Lost all my eye brows and eyelashes. Car hit a F*****G

      deer on the way to casualty and was written off.

      DEC 22nd

      F*****G B*****D white sh*te just keeps on coming down. Have to put on

      every article of clothing just to go to the post box. The little C***S

      next door ambushed me with snowballs on the way back - I'll shove that

      carrot so far up the little pr*cks a*se it'll take a good surgeon 6 hours

      to find it. If I ever catch the a*sehole that drives the snowplough I'll

      chew open his chest and rip out his heart with my teeth. I think the

      B*****D hides round the corner and waits for me to finish shovelling and

      then he accelerates down the street like Michael F*****G Schumacher and

      buries the F*****G driveway again.

      DEC 23rd

      16 more sodding inches of F*****G snow and F*****G ice and F*****G

      sleet and god knows what other white sh*te fell last night. I am in court

      in 3 months time for assaulting the snowplough driver with an ice pick.

      Can't move my F*****g toes. Haven't seen the sun for 5 weeks. Minus 20 and

      more F*****G snow forecast F**K THIS, I'M MOVING BACK TO
      ADELAIDE!!!! .

      I didn't mind the snow but despised the dark and damp. As some have said to us, you get to Adelaide and it's like someone turned the lights on:)
