There's still snow here today, not as much as most of you but a good inch or so, and more is falling now, meaning UKC is closing at 2pm, and a couple of schools are closing now that were open earlier due to worsening conditions. Our stairs, which have been swept and salted twice since yesterday are overwhelmed with snow again. It's all rather exciting ;)

For readers elsewhere I should explain that here in the UK, especially in the South East corner (and I'm almost as south and east as you can get) we don't usually get snow, especially snow that settles enough to do stuff in due to the jet stream which keeps Britain warm, despite it being on the same longitude as Moscow (I believe). So when it does snow and settles it causes chaos ;)

Our excitement this morning was doubled (or more!) by being able to have a proper play with [livejournal.com profile] benc's Christmas present, Lego Technic set 8275, a Motorized Bulldozer in the snow.

Research suggested it would work very well in the snow, as there are videos of the Lego development team testing one of the development models in the snow, but we still wanted to have a play ourselves. This most recent (and heavy) snow has given us the perfect opportunity.

So we did. Here are the videos to prove it!

First [livejournal.com profile] benc had a go while I filmed:


Then I drove it while [livejournal.com profile] benc filmed:

I think I can safely say that a good time was had by all :)

Last night on one of the blogs I read fairly regularly I came across a link that allows you to make a lego mini-me. It's a bit like making a South Park minime, except with lego.

Here's mine:



You make them here.

Now go forth and procrastinate!

In other news I'm working clearing this week and my body has picked now to develop a cold. Hopefully I won't lose my voice or that's me out of a job!

So, I went to Legoland. And I returned. Albeit much redder than I went. I got quite badly sunburned :(

On the upside, today was really fun and cool, if tiring. Ta to my friend Sue who made it all happen :)

I have a lego brick ice cube tray now and a yoda lego keyring. Ben has a lego R2D2 keyring and a dinosaur model.

So there are pictures :D

All 135 of them.

Favourites include:

Dinosaur on the Loose!


Gold diggers succeed!


And, omg! The PICK A BRICK store!
Huge tubs of the kind that house pick n mix, except they are full of lego bricks!



I swear, you could find any bricks you wanted there! And if you can't, I have it on good authority that you can order it, though I doubt that any place that can devote an entire container to red single bricks with eyes printed on them then the chances are they have the brick you are looking for.

Just. Dude! :D

Woo :D
