Snow



So it rarely snows in London. But when it does, the city grinds to a halt.

This was the scene outside my front door at about 8am this morning. Son 1's college is closed today. Son 2's school is closed for at least three days. Hubby is at home too, because it is not safe to drive the 14 miles into Central London on what is a very hilly route, the tube station is shut and there are no buses running in the whole of London.

And spotted in our garden early this morning was a fox, knee deep in snow and looking very pissed off...

Hope you all keep warm.

Wow, indeed. We've got a little bit this morning. But nothing like as much as that.

I'm not surprised he was pissed off! Bloody awful stuff!

Beautiful to look at through the window. Not so much fun in your shoes. Stay warm.

That snow certainly looks beautiful. I wish I'd had the day off too.

Things are starting to get back to normal, though there is still plenty of snow left. We are such wimps in London!
