Where's all the snow we were promised?

My kids all got very excited earlier this week when they heard there was going to be snow this week, and no doubt are expecting their school to be closed allowing them to enjoy hours of snowman building and snowballing like last winter. However, apart from the odd flek around lunchtime we saw nothing so I suspect when they get home from school they'll be disappointed. Whilst I can't make it snow, I can share this snowy vintage postcard from 1907. It's deliberately not an overtly Christmas postcard (yet) as I want to reserve those firmly for December.

As usual, 100's more vintage postcards on my web site

  2. Lovely card. I can imagine the artist tap tap tapping those snowflakes.

  4. I haven't seen snow in such a long time. California doesn't have much, although we do have snowy mountains.
    It's a very pretty black and white postcard.

  5. That's a beautiful postcard. We don't have snow in Ohio yet but the drawing on the card captures winter beautifully - and makes me feel cold!

  6. Beautiful postcard. We are getting snow here in northern Minnesota. Wish I was in southern California just about now.

  7. I'm not sure about the situation where you are (Where are you by the way) but the question is by now rhetorical if you live around here.

  8. @Alan - I'm in West Berkshire, and yes, we do now have snow, but not as much as you guys got by the sound of it.
