Walking in a Winter Wonderland for a Monday Meme

Monday came and went again, and that can only mean one thing... Another Meme! I love Monday's -weird saying that I know - but every week Berry rolls out a fun meme to keep our minds working on our little blog spaces. I'm not even sure people read my ramblings, but I love getting working on the posts and while I have the memes to work on every week I don't see myself stopping any time soon! So, thanks Berry!
On to this week's Meme then... We're heading full speed ahead into the Winter Season at the moment. It has taken hold in both RL and SL, though I have often wondered how weird it must be for people in the Southern Hemisphere to be thinking about the cold in SL when they are heading into Summer... Anyway, Berry has themed her Meme this week about the cold season and so I am using it as an excuse to tell you all about the new and awesome weather system that Hell has just set up at our home!
This weather system is the brain child of the man behind the Dwelling Quay store. He has created weather that is lag free, low prim count AND gorgeously verified. At the moment, the sim is set up for snow, but you really need to see it rain!! Oh my gosh I love the rain effects! I feel biased in saying something about it, my daughter Kenzee has just become his customer service representative, but really even without that I would rave about this product. You need to see it to believe, I was the same. We have a bike track on our land - a place where large groups of bikers will come to ride en mass, now these groups have a lot of scripted bikes and therefore cause a fairly large lag spike when they arrive, and we were worried that the system might make it worse... IT DOESN'T!!! I KNOW I AM AS SHOCKED AS YOU!!
OK enough of a sales pitch - thought seriously go check it out LOL - but time to move on to Berry's Questions...
What is the December/Winter season like where you live? – The Winter Season here seems to vary. At the moment there is a chill in the air but it feels crisp, not too cold - nothing that a warm coat cannot protect you from at any rate. The sun is shinning though so that makes everything seem pretty. We do get a LOT of rain here, and it will usually snow in January. Amsterdam is gorgeous in the snow, that is until it melts and starts to become like brown slush hehe...
When you think of winter, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? – I love Autumn for the colours, but as soon as Winter starts to rear it's head I start thinking about wishing I could hibernate like other animals LOL... Seriously the dark nights and the dark mornings do make me feel a little sad.
Have you ever played any extreme winter sports? – Pft NO lol... I'm one of those people you'd see at a Ski resort spending all their time sitting around in the lodge with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book... In fact let me just skip the ski resort and stay home with the book?
What do you like most about this season? – Definitely not the snow, I am far too paranoid about falling over! I do however love that feeling of being allowed to snuggle up warm. I love having PJ days and staying in reading my books - in case you hadn't already noticed hehe!
Do you celebrate Christmas, Hannukkah, Kwanzaa or another holiday during this time of year? – I love Christmas. Well not actually Christmas itself - if I'm being honest - I love the run up to Christmas when things are feeling festive and pretty, and I love the day after Christmas when you can veg out and just enjoy some good television... Christmas Day itself can often be something of a let down after all the hard work you put into it, but I love that week before Christmas when everything is feeling sparkly!

  1. Oh the weather systems sounds very interesting, I would love to come see it. I'll definitely go check it out at the store. Do you mind sharing the SLurl of your sim (if it's public that is) so I can see the system in action? Thanks for participating in the meme btw! <3
