It doesn't get any better in the new year with you ,does it.
Bill Phillips: Of course not.
You've had more snow than we have... (um... well, we've had none - usually we've had 18 inches or more by New Years...).

Bill Phillips: Perhaps it is lulling you into a false sense of security grin

I doubt the Pommie Test team could even hit a ball this big, Bill! smile
Bill Phillips: Cook has played his one innings of the series but doesn't play in the white ball games. The final test is about to start...4-0 beckons
J'adore la neige mais il n'y en a pas chez moi.
Bill Phillips: We only had it for a very short time Martine

You are on the same page like Chris - England in snow! Funny title!
Bill Phillips: One form of cricket played under floodlights uses a white ball rather than the traditional red one

White balls are used in limited-overs matches that usually require the team batting second to play their innings under floodlights.

Under these conditions a white ball is easier to see than a red one.

The materials used to make cricket balls are the same now as in the 1700s.

All cricket balls are made from cork and latex rubber on the inside with leather on the outside.

But white balls show up scuffs and blemishes more than red ones.

So they have a harder-wearing coating to stop them getting dirty.
Bill Phillips: Have you ever watched white ball cricket?
I wish your series on snow would melt away
Bill Phillips: Not a chance comrade. It has already lasted farlonger than the snow did

A game I've never understood. The white ball will be symbolic of the whitewash to the English cricket team in Australia.
Bill Phillips: We drew the 4th test so can (and probably will) only lose 4-0. May do better in the one day series

I see you have made the best (or the most) of your snow, Bill
Bill Phillips: Well it doesn't happen that often

Superb Bill. I love the giant ball and the calypso Is funny.
Bill Phillips: Glad you enjoyed it
When we had the big snow a couple of weekends ago our Grandson decided to make a big snowball like this down the road from his house. It got so big he telephoned home to get everyone to come out and help him roll it the last few yards as it was too big for him to do it on his own. I only got to see the remains a few days later, it took ages to melt away.
Bill Phillips: It is amazing how long a large lump of snow can last, particularly if it is in the shade
Someone had a great time making that monster sized snowball.
Bill Phillips: I am sure they did. Mind you I wouldn't want one that size thrown at me
It reminds me of playing golf in the snow on one occasion - a morning of high scores and much laughter smile
Bill Phillips: You could have used yellow balls.
Well played!
Bill Phillips: Haha Thanks!
where is this located Bill?
Bill Phillips: This is the local cricket club ground situated in the Park close to where we live
