Why I want to be a polar bear right now

It's still snowing. And yes, it's practically been snowing all the time (at least as far as I can tell) since I last mentioned it! Everything looks like a big giant (albeit rather complicatedly shaped) cotton ball. Which is all very nice and fine as long as you dont have to step out into it. Actually even outside it's not too bad. I've realised that temperatures around 0 I can actually live with quite happily. Zero degrees Centigrade of course.I'm a little circumspect while walking around these days though. As displayed above, pretty much any and every surface with the slightest non-zero horizontal component is loaded with snow. One of these days I'm gonna be walking under one of these trees and a huge lump is going to slide off and land right on my head :|.Not that there's a whole lot of walking happening. Just the to work in the morning and from work in the evening. It just so happens that somehow all the people I usually hang out with here are missing. Most of them are landing up next week, but that still leaves what promises to be a rather solitary week. I'm planning to down shift to the minimum of activity possible. Not do anything that doesn't absolutely have to be done. Like laundry. Or not. Anyway, point is, I'm seriously considering going into some sort of hibernation. Having to land up at work everyday isn't going to help very much with that though is it? :-<
