You poor fella, just stay strong, you're doing well and can pull your way through.

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

I have to say that I'n taken down my shrine to Goddess Khione, I'm turning my back on her and her ineffectual powers.

Still not the same as seeing the sacred white stuff in your own back yard.

I have managed to contain myself well this winter and not relapse.

I really think a change will come as the polar vortex slowly loosens its tight grip.
When MT asked the first snowfall of the season question couple months ago i put down Feb 5th i think it was. I did this because that's when i truly felt winter would arrive. So i shall not go off the rails till after then.

PS
Hope then rest of ye can hang on because truly epic snow has mostly fallen in this time period in the past whereas what we experience Nov /Dec last year does not happen really at all.

Of course if that too fails there is alway next winter

Hee hee! I was only joking in the other thread! But this makes sense. We can talk to our hearts content about those magical flakes from heaven!

I went to Prague in December thinking if we didn't get snow at home, I'd be guaranteed some there. But alas they were going through an unseasonable mild spell

Some in the west may see snow on the night of 1-2 January or even during the day Monday. Once again, it's elevation dependent (150m).
