I know this is all old hat to Americans living in the north of the USA, and my constant bleating about the snow must seem very baffling – but this really is usual for us and I’d be neglecting the life documenting aspects of this blog if I were to ignore it. Especially as the pundits are all predicting this is going to be the coldest winter in the UK for 100 years.
So, it snowed again.
In fact it’s still snowing. Amy’s school is still open, but only four kids out of her class turned up and I’m guessing I’m going to get a phone call at lunchtime asking me to come get her.
We had to walk in though as our drive was impassable, and even if it was there was no way i was going to attempt driving on our road. I’ve done that once before in conditions like this and I ended up almost sliding backwards down the hill.
I’ve not bothered taking evan to nursery however, the hassle of walking him down there too just wouldn’t be worth it.
I’m not overly grumpy about the snow at the moment, but that’s probably got something to do with the fact I don’t have to go in to work until Friday. I’ll be plenty grumpy then however, so I should probably enjoy it while it lasts.
I’ve said it before, but the snow certainly makes things look very lovely. On the way to school I saw a black crow flying against a background of white fields which was almost spiritual in it’s beauty. Unfortunately I only had my notoriously crappy iPhone camera with me so had no chance at all of capturing it. Stupid iPhone.
And that’s it. That’s all I’ve got. Not very entertaining was it, but as I say one of the purposes of this blog is to document stuff too, so that’s what I’m doing. There’s also a lengthy update on the Hadrian’s Walk blog going up today – but that’s not particularly thrilling if you’re not directly involved in it either.
Come bak tomorrow when I shall be eating fire and juggling chainsaws.
