The last 2 days have seen a very rare thing in this part of the world. Actual snow! We had barely an inch, but thats better than nothing! (Which has been the average snowfall here for the last 10 years or so)


I know there must be many people in more northerly places who are sick of the sight of it, and having their lives disrupted by power cuts and being snowed in, so sorry to you guys! And those of you down under who’d probably love a bit of this weather at the moment!


I find it quite amusing how we can’t cope with snow in England. Everything sort of grinds to a halt. As I said, we only had about an inch of snow here, but that has been enough to close most of the schools in the area and put out warnings that people should only travel if it is really necessary. How do people live in areas that have several feet of snow every year? How does the transport network keep going? And phones? And power? We just couldn’t do it.
