As I’m sure some of you are aware the uk has been it by rather a lot of snow. Well a lot for the uk anyway. Apparently its the coldest winter in 18 years. I was only young 18 years ago and some would say I still am being only 23, but I can remember tramping off to school with my mum, the snow up to my knees and making it there only to find it closed.
I have no idea what was happening in the rest of the country at the time I guess that being a kid I was more concerned about building snowmen and not having to be at school.
This time around thought I can see all the fuss that is being made of the snow although that doesn’t mean I’m not still concerned about making snowmen because I am. As I write the snow is falling outside and we are running out of milk, the road is covered and I haven’t seen a car go down the street for at least an hour now. Saying that however the fuss everyone seems to be making rather amuses me.
The grit is running out and it seems that everyone is panicking about this. People seem to think its some sort of magic dust that destroys the evil snow when really in this sort of weather it has really very little effect especially when snow is falling. for it to be most effective it needs traffic to mix it in which isn’t forthcoming as only the main roads are being done and no one can leave the towns and estates and with snow falling it is its a rather a pointless effort.
I was supposed to be working yesterday but there was no way that I could safely get there and back again the buses that I rely on did begin to run towards the afternoon but there was no way that I could guarantee that I would be able to get home especially with cold temperature and more snow on the way. and I really don’t want to be forced to have to stay the night at work.
Normally I would go out and take some photos but stupidly I have put my camera away while my room is decorated i may go out with my mobile later and see what i can grab so keep an eye on my flickr account which you can find HERE
Think I may update this particular blog throughout the day as I think of things to write so stay tuned
Well I didnt think of anything else to say althought the days isnt yet over but i did manage to get some photos using my mobile phone. They are on my flickr page take a look
