Arrrrgh!
Today is a national holiday here, so a friend of my mom's plus a couple of her friends and I planned to go on a short vacation to a termal bath for the weekend. This morning I woke up and she called that we had to cancel - there's code red for the whole western part of the country, whole towns are under blocade, no one is to go in or out cause they'd end up having to be rescued, and even here in the city there's so much snow I can't see the road, so I can't even travel to my granny's for the weekend even though she's to the East :evil:
Dear weather, I've got news for you: IT'S MARCH!

Sorry mC. :( More snow is bad enough, but even worse that it's ruined your trip.

Yeah, it's frustrating when weather gets into the way.
Bad news is, due to global warming you'll probably have to get used to that sort of thing (more snow in winter), as paradox as it may sound.
Due to the temperatures rising at the north pole, the circular air stream around the pole becomes weaker and thus cold air can drift farther to the south, resulting in colder winters.
This is rather simplified. You can find it in more detail here (sorry, no link):
Francis, J. A., Vavrus, S. J.: Evidence Linking Arctic Amplification to Extreme Weather in Mid-Latitude. In: Geophysical Research Letters 39, L06801, 2012
Well, here's the abstract at least:

I don't mind snow in the winter, moreover, I'd like a lot of snow in the winter, only not in March... :?

We have snow on the ground again this morning! :D

I don't think it will last though.

I gave my old netbook to my eldest nephew and I have just had to put up with a 20 minute moan from my sister about how crap it was I was this close to saying fine then give me it back and you go and buy him a better one for Christ sake it was free I gave the damn thing to him for his mother to take away and get fixed up for him I know it wasn't that good but it was a FREE computer for fImageks sake if she had given me money then she has every right to moan
I could had sold the thing for parts I mean I could've used the money
