Thanks to high winds last night we have no power. The house is freezing. The girls and I were going stir crazy. So now we're at the local coffee/play structure place, having lunch, burning off energy and taking advantage of the wifi.

We got very lucky and missed out on the tornadoes which hit IL. They just missed us.

It rained here on the weekend which was nice. It's stinking bloody hot now though.

Good beach weather.

We had our first snow here last week. Looked pretty, lasted a few hours and caused the usual traffic chaos. :roll:

I hope your snow in Hungary is a bit better than that, MC.

Hey, I can tell my Hungarian Santa Claus joke!

What does Santa Claus say when it snows in Budapest?

Hó, hó, hó!

(MC will get that one. The rest of you can use Google translate :D )

:doh: :lol: :lol: Where did you get that one from, Will? It's strange but I never even thought about ho-ho-ho this way before, even though it's so obvious... I'm amazed, I really am :D

There was basically no snow, is melted as soon as it hit the ground, we're not even expecting any more soon, but it's a start :mrgreen:

I'm afraid I made it up. :oops:

I went on several Hungarian courses in the winter. With real snow. It kind of suggested itself. :mrgreen:

Very windy down south, and very cold too.

I hope you won't be wanting a Scotrail service today, Dug? :lol:
