Winter Wonderland

The subject of this entry is not one that I would be able to use very often here in London. Last night, and continuing this morning, we are having what the weather forecaster on Radio4 described as “the heaviest snowfall in England”. I can’t imagine having the heaviest snowfall in England here in London, but there you go.

I opened the back door, turned on the light, and took a picture of the backyard and the snowfall. I’m glad I don’t have to shovel it. I believe it’ll top out at about 2 inches so I’ll be working at home today as public transport will not be easy. Oh, and those of you from places where people sneer until you get a foot of snow or more, please do not comment on what wusses we are, or I’ll drop a house on you.

    Snowfall toping off at two inches?
    Sounds like the Pacific NW.
    Are the press going a little bit crazy? (Closing schools? Slippery roads? Etc.?)

    Well, Luton Airport is closed, schools up north in places like Solihull are closed, and so on and so forth.

    I haven’t heard that the schools in London are closed. The New Kent Road in front of the house is clear, so the plows and sanders have been out overnight. The now has stopped falling as heavily (still some flurrying) so we’ll see what happens later.

    Looks nice. Hopefully it’ll all melt away easily over the next couple days and not be too messy.

    That’s a really respectable layer of snow! What time was that? I noted quite a bit of snow falling around 9:30 this morning.

    It was around 6:15 am. It’s almost all gone now, of course.
