It's Snow Feeding Frenzy

Well the apocalyptic snow hasn't arrived in this part of Merseyside so the match will be on. It also means that I did not go into town early to take photos of a snow blanketed city. This gave me time to write my FlashFeed1.9 and keep up my 100% record. Huzzah! Still time for you to get in there with your story - click on the pic for the link.

Anyway, now time to get down to town to watch the Liverpool derby (and maybe that other one from down the road).

Liverpool

With the lack of snow today here is a pic of me and my sis in the snow (which goes well with my #VSS365 today) from very back in the day in snowy Southport. My sis looks nothing at all like my niece (well, EXACTLY really). It's an old fashioned snowman kids- having a fag!

Winter(ish)

Not managed any writing this week yet. Been reading Calendark though - it's excellent! Should finish it tomorrow and aim to get a review on to Amazon and/or Goodreads during the week ahead. In the meantime I've been reading Sal's chosen sentences from each story on Twitter. These extra 140 characters are giving her more options aren't they!

The week at work has been a mixture of fences and ditches. Well, cold weather and breakdowns. Was fearful of the snow and ice in Snowdonia today when I was handed that route, but it didn't turn out to be the hospital pass I thought it would be. Ye haw! Just a wee bit of snow and no slip-sliding away into ditches or trees - always a bonus!

Last night the forecast for tomorrow was heavy, heavy snow across Liverpool and the north west, and whilst I am off for the day I had two concerns 1) it better not bloody mean the Liverpool v Everton derby gets called off and 2) better charge my camera so I can get some nice pics of Liverpool in the snow.

That said, Snowmageddon has now been un-forecast and Liverpool is forecast to be a bit nippy but not under feet of snow. At least that means the game will defo be on, but the chance of getting some nice snowy photos looks to be postponed.

Really looking forward to the match, will get a few choice beers in Liverpool too - and finish off Calendark. At some point I need to do this week's FlashFeed; haven't even checked out the photo prompt yet.
