Pictures from May this year. Kazakh weather had already transformed from ice and snow to t-shirt weather.

Tom #2 (the pilot) didn’t turn up, hope his flight to Astana was ok…
Anyway we (Myself, Tom & Walton (and Ira when she had finished at Work)) went to Cafe Shymkent, and had a nice meal and a couple of drinks. Talked about all sorts, and I managed to stay sober enough to remember everything this time. Having spent the night working on getting links to my Ad Sense websites up, I’m about to head to bed.
Looked out the window, and it appears to have been snowing a fair bit over night…
If you compare these two photos to the ones here, you can see the lanes are now covered over again completely.
Doesn’t seem to slow down some drivers though…

As promised here, these are a couple of quick snapshots of the snow in the daytime…

The snow is now settling, and the temperature has dropped.
Not sure if we’ll yet meet the prediction I passed on earlier last month, but at least it now looks like proper Winter weather.
As I work from home, my views are not necessarily the same as those of people who have to walk/skid to work… I imagine more accidents are on the way.
Will post some piccies later, heading to bed now…
OK, here are a couple of night time piccies from when it started snowing, I’ll upload some day light ones when I get round to taking them…
First you see what happens if you leave everything on automatic, and forget to turn the flash off…
Second we have the flash off, with the shutter speed slowed a little to try and grab some more light without the flash, hence the moving cars in the back ground

I woke up this morning, looked out the window, and it was snowing 🙂
There were a few flakes a couple of weeks ago, but this was proper fluffy snow.
Dad is off to Paris this weekend with Jan, and hopes to be buying a house in Evesham soon.
Mum and John have hopefully sold the house in St Thomas, and are settling in nicely at Clydach. In case you missed the posts on it, and ignore the links in the sidebar on the right, you can visit John’s site here. Please be aware some of his images are not for minors.
Really looking forward to visiting family and friends this Christmas in the UK, and to Nick (my brother) and Dad coming back with us to celebrate New Year here in Astana.
If you don’t get this post’s title, I’m guessing you’ve never heard a town crier…
