Seems to be the only place we are getting snow down in Florida. I like it also. Nice touch.

Just an idea: can you make the snow accumulate at the bottom of the screen? A reminder to get on with the reading... :haha:
If you look closely, the snowflakes do actually settle lol. Unfortunately we can't have a full on Russian winter in the browser because it will slow down people's PCs.
Yeah, but it melts too fast. :sorrow: I tried to lower room temperature :cold: but even then it never even stacks two flakes high! :down:

I noticed that Sky F1 (or at least the broadcast we get here)in one of their promo clips had the snow effect thing happening as well.

There is snow, up north. From Dalarna county and upwards. Absolutely nothing here in Stockholm.

Last year we had the tiniest of snow falls on the day I returned hom from NYC, December 1st. That was all the snow I saw last winter.

My XC skis have been sitting unused in the shed for almost two years now.

But, of course, it has nothing to do with global warming.

It's pouring with rain here, dull, grey and miserable right now.

Are we over the snow on the desktop look yet?
The only reason I mention it is when navigating the site on my phone its hard to tell where my cursor is and it seems it hides in amongst the snow falling.

Yours Sincerely,

(Yes I know the answer is use my PC or Laptop instead of my 'phone :smiley: Just sayin.
Dont the Xmas decorations have to be down by 12th night? :dunno: :haha: )

Now our weather forecast said we could have a bit snow tomorrow. 2 - 3 cm... Would be the first time since 2019.

Alright, it stopped snowing, but it might take a little while for the snow to melt...
