We have very few snow days. It's expensive and a 6 hour drive and only happens between late June and August:

Europeans and Americans and even a few New Zealanders do this:



Aussies do this:


What? It's just melted snow!

It's just as fun. Snow bunnies versus Gold Coast meter maids!

I'm going to find me some little waves in Uruguay.

Ribbon said...

oops meant to read ... the videos!

definitely time for me to go to bed.. after the videos

Roy said...

Believe it or not, even when it's snowing the premier Winter sport in Newport is surfing. Those nor'easters kick up some dynamite waves!

And di you know it's snowing on your blog page? I had to scrape off my monitor twice! (j/k)

Leah said...

The lightly falling snow is charming, Baino.

And wow! to the videos.

Candie Bracci said...

How cool is that!Thank you for sharing Baino!Love to you!Have a nice evening :)

e said...

Love it Baino! How did you do the falling snow in your background? Happy Thursday.

Janice said...

Very fun, Baino! The falling snow in the background is so clever. I was late (well, it is only 8 a.m. here in CA) getting my TT Snow piece up, but it is there now. Thanks for the comment on my birthday writing, and no I bought the cake...not much of a baker. The cakes you describe sound fabulous, and I wish I could see them, melted or not. I am looking forward to Fuckwit Friday. Will it be Tiger again?

R.J. Edwards said...

I'd love to join the Aussie's in their melted snow right now. lol

Those videos are great, Baino. Thanks for posting!

AngelMay said...

Late June and August? You really ARE upside down, aren't you? :) Thanks for great post.

JeffScape said...

Water is melted snow, snow is evaporated and frozen water, and somewhere in that cycle we drink and then pee the stuff out.

Kinda gross when you think about it, eh?

Hah!

Ronda Laveen said...

HA! You Aussie's...contrary and "doin' it your way." Love your style. Always have! Hang loose!

Wings said...

Funny how different it is there than here. We get snow and it sticks around for MONTHS. Want some?

Bimbimbie said...

You got snow, Tsup*!*

Tom said...

ooh! the only video game i like is Playstation SSX Tricky...snowboarding...but i'm not crazy enough to play for real! How do any of these idiots live past the age of 20?

subby said...

I do neither. Just keeping the bloomin' car on the road is sport enough, wot? I'll stick to making the snowpeople :)

Stephanie said...

I used to have nightmares about BIG waves getting me (I was living in Hawaii at the time and had eaten my share of sand).

laughingwolf said...

have no intention of feeding either bears or fishes, thank you very much :P lol

Betsy said...

Neat, neat videos!

Renee said...

Dear friend I put that song for you just because you told me of your Dad's funeral and how you didn't like the wording.

To be honest though I feel the words fit for me because many times like today I feel like a wretch.

Love Renee xoxoxo

Santa Claus said...

HO HO HO! My good friend Baino! I love what you have done to your site! I love the snow, but surfing is not my thing! Merry Christms! Why are all the good ones 12000 milea away!? :)

Dreamhaven said...

Wow, I'm glad to watch, but my feet ache just at the thought of trying to stay upright on those boards. Happy TT

SJ said...

gd share of vids

A smile from SJ =)

Liza said...

Love the snow effect!
I love to watch, but I am definitely not that adventurous, at least I don't think so. Okay, this doesn't right at all, lol!
Love this post.
Happy tt.

Vagabonde said...

I like your falling snow, it’s so gentle. But I don’t see anything gentle in those sports – I am exhausted just watching your clips! I need to get back to my armchair and rest…

Jill said...

WHOA! Cool videos!

And...love the snow on the bloggo!

kj said...

oh damn, it's too late tonight to listen to this or there will be hell to pay for waking up jb.

anyway, i can at least stop by and leave you a little smooch.

:)

River said...

I love the falling snow effect, is it hard to do?

Megan said...

Sorry, no comment, just realized I missed the last post, must go read that.

Darned date line...

Yes, i think being in Australia, melted snow is your best bet! Clever angle that!
