Obligatory Snow Post
(only a week or so late!!)
Last week it snowed a whole lot. This picture was taken on the first morning of snow, before it even got especially vehement, but it was a white-out already (you can’t really see the cathedral buildings in the background). I liked the shot of the nativity scene with snow falling… just like a Victorian Christmas card.
I didn’t enjoy life grinding to a halt very much, as I’d been looking forward to some interesting lectures that week, and it also reminded me how much I rely on routine and life carrying on ‘just so’. All the disruption left me feeling a little frustrated at times, and a bit uncertain, although it did make for some great impromptu coffee meetings, even if we did have to trudge through knee deep snow to reach them.
I’ve never seen it snow without ceasing for 24 hours before, and it was definitely the most snow I’ve seen laying (in the UK, at least), in my whole 27 years. I think my prayers for snow are well and truly answered, although I’d now like to see some winter sunshine!
