    The coldest we had here, for the moment is 2c, rather wet.

    So I did this one:

    Early snow

    Nice but can we have warmer images please...I am freezing. :)

    I like that render too, and I don't think 2c (or 35.6f) is all that cold. Of course, it was 54f here today (12.22c). Almost like Spring. :-)

    This is driving me mad

    I'm trying to put Shelter into my cart but nothing goes in. Then I try again and it says maximum allowed is one though the cart is still empty. Mind is boggling. I've tried logging out and deleting recent history but nothing doing. I have permitted all of the cloud sites in NoScript so that's not the problem.

    OK, it's there now. Either somebody fixed it behind the radar or I did something by accident that made it all behave. The site is slow today or the transatlantic cable is in a knot.

    our winters here have been getting a lot milder in recent years. I remember when I was a kid having to open an up-stairs window and shoveling snow into the house and into large metal wash tubs so we could melt it by the fire place and dump the water in the bath tub. We had to do this because the snow was up past the roof line and there was no other way to get out of the house. So we would shovel our way out the window, tunnel down to the front door and then dig a tunnel out to the road. Before a big storm we would park the cars out about 6 or 7 miles from the house at friend's houses that lived on streets with more trees because they had less chance of getting snowed in. That way when we got snowed in we could take snow mobiles back and forth to where the cars were at. That was what winters used to be like here. I remember rarely ever going to school in December or January. Now we have had several years where you could go out in shorts and a t-shirt and cook X-mas dinner on the grill. And people tell me global warming is a myth.

    ...yesterday (Monday) it in Milwaukee, was 65° the city set a new record for the warmest day in December. I also remember "big snows", when I was growing up.

    Yea I had some aggro like that the other day.. I think the trick is to put something else in your cart, then it should show up.. so you can then clear your cart and start over.

    Invetero provides a fine scene setting for a Reality/LuxRender generated image ...

    Glad to hear it works well in Lux, too :)

    Irony. After doing a summer scene it's snowing outside this morning. Only about an inch so far but it looks pretty on the trees and roofs. Glad I can work online today.

    Heh, yea.. are you in the UK? We've had a dusting, so hopefully that's all we'll have... it will be chaos otherwise lol

    We're having a class 2 snowstorm warning here, and all the idiots that forget to drive carefully are in the ditches like flowers in the spring!

    Yes - down in Kent. It's eased off a bit now. We don't get much snow so anything creates chaos. Once got snowed in up in the north midlands - several feet of snow - hearing Kent was "almost cut off". When we got back there was about three inches. Big girls' blouses the lot of 'em she says in her best northern accent.

    Ehup in sunny Doncaster we hardly get any snow. When others around get feet we get inches...I hate snow and spam. :)

    It's for the best Szark.. even that causes chaos. Last year when we had a good few feet of it, we were just cut off for a good week. Madness!

    Madness indeed....mind you Dec 12 2012 the world as we know it will end.....I hope the change is for the better. LOL

    I thought it was the 21st December,, have I marked the wrong date on my calendar?

    Mind you with snow in Kent, and none here so far on this South Wales mountain, something must be going funky. Further up mountain, come proper winter that shelter will have snow up and over the seats, and yet the headline as I pulled into Yahoo to read my mail said First snow of the winter for London. Oh dear, the poor dears are so unused to snow that they rate a headline for a mere sprinkle. :roll:

    Haven't tried it yet, is there a depth morph on the snow level, so I can show it up here in the Brecon Beacons.

    Yea, a few mates have been saving the trains were all over the place due to 'severe conditions' - which in reality was snow for about 15mins and none of it really settled.. lol!

    No the shelter doesn't have a depth morph.. though I guess you could just get a white plane and just have the roof sticking out ;)

    Yeah, Christmas early, on the Solstice , and then continue the celebrations for as long as we are allowed. Does that sound like a plan ?
