The coldest I ever swam in was the Northsea at 16 degrees; no fun.

That's a lot of snow in a short time! I guess the rain that has been falling all day here is from the same front...

I hope you got good grip again for sliding around :D

Just the other day I was watching the movie "Deadfall" (with Eric Bana as the bad guy) which is a good "snow"movie and was wondering when the first snow pics would be appearing; you beat them all, Wilco. Although I had expected some Russian competition?

Wow, yeah, I admit, I was curious to see what a posting in "East Snowtopic" in mid-July would look like, but it's certainly still on topic!
