Snow on the way!

According to the East Anglian Daily Times:
Freezing temperatures grip county as snow is on the way
Friday, February 3, 2012, 11:53 AM
    SUFFOLK: Snow is expected to sweep across Suffolk tomorrow as the cold snap continues its grip on the region.
    Forecasters at WeatherQuest in Norwich said a scatttering of the white stuff could settle tonight while tomorrow will start with flurries of snow before heavier blizzards develop into the evening as temepratures fall to around -2C.
    However the weather is expected to get better over the course of the weekend with temperatures increasing by Sunday.
    As the threat of snow looms ambulance bosses are urging the public to use their common sense and take care.
    Gary Sanderson, spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service, wants to ensure people are stocked up on medication for long-term conditions, or minor coughs, colds and other ailments, and take all necessary steps to stay safe, warm and well. Pedestrians and motorists should also take care when out and about because of potentially icy conditions and freezing temperatures.

According to the view outside my window this lunchtime?

Snow forecast today Snow forecast today
However, this is the view out of my office window, today, Friday 3rd February, at just gone 13:30. Not many heavy snowclouds up there. ¬_¬
Looking in the other direction.
It started out cloudy, it was bitterly cold out first thing, and I'm sure the snow will roll in exactly as forecast (...ruining my plans to go into town tomorrow. I hate trudging around in sludgy snow), it just doesn't LOOK that likely at the moment.

In other news, my free sample of new "Preciosa Twin" beads came yesterday! OK so you have to "like" them on Facebook, and then get a code, and then go to another website and put that code in and blah blah blah, but that's not exactly asking a lot to get a free sample of high-quality Czech beads. (And that's including the postage being free, too)

My free sample arrived!
Free beads! Free beads!
The beads themselves - two holes! EXCITING
