We've got a big ball of yellow burning stuff in the sky and it hurts the eyes to look at it... oh, wait, it's the sun.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

That you've gotten to see that at all makes me jealous. We haven't seen that thing in ages Wink

Our snow had all been washed away by rain, but now we have a fresh couple of inches with more coming down. Its the light fluffy sort, though, so I'm okay with it.

See, that's what happens if you leave something unattended for too long, some light-fingered little bugger comes along and *snap* it's gone, just like that. Same thing happened to my sanity a few years back.

Well, I had copious amounts of man-flu, free to a good home, last month but no one at work took me up on my generous offer, even after I put adverts on the notice boards  Cheesy

I can see it now:

"Greetings, good ladies and gentlemen of <insert name of workplace here>! A lovely fellow by the name of Influenza(he's a foreign fellow) is looking for a temporary home. He rather enjoys traveling through cold places, and, being a rather sociable fellow, he happens to enjoy sharing his presence and company with several people at any given time. He requires quite a bit of food to stay strong and healthy, though if you need him to go away you might simply starve him for several days. Might anyone have a place in their hearts for him? Inquire at<insert phone number>."

Maybe, though they might think it hot, considering lack of atmosphere on the planet weighing 6,421 x 1023 kg

Well you're talking current martian conditions. What  if they evolved on the surface before the planet lost it's magnetic field and was stripped bare by solar radiation, moving to underground habitats more suitable for them?
