we’ve had a lot of snow here in england recently and it’s been quite exciting! it’s also caused chaos! while it does snow here once or twice a year it’s always very light and if it settles its barely a few inches thick. this time it was about 6 inches thick and britain came to a standstill!
i couldn’t even get to work. the first day i couldn’t get out my drive – i was skidding and sliding all over the place. at the end of the day it had thawed and i managed to park my car in the street, but then the next morning the car wouldn’t start. the engine had gotten wet or cold or something and I had to get the car repair man to come out. this meant that we were stranded for two and a half days until my friend charlie came to take me out on saturday night.
the first day we were stuck my first impulse was “yay! snowday!” but poor old charlotte didn’t share my enthusiasm as she was set to miss out on some crucial classes ahead of her exam. and then, on top of that, the drains suddenly got blocked and we had to get the drain men out!
so it was a bit stressful, really. well, in parts. it was very stressful in parts but overall we managed to have some fun and make the most of it!
we went for nice snow-walks, had snowball fights (with each other and with the village children) and made a snowman! we also watched the end of season 1 of jericho, as well as the mummy 3 (which sadly wasn’t very good) and generally just cuddled up together!
i also just found the snow itself amazing! i’d never seen thick snow before and this was only the second time i saw snow settle. i love how it collected on each and every surface and how thick it was! i loved walking through it. i was so silly i was jumping around in it and even tried to slide on it (too many cartoons)!
i loved how it fell so thickly! there was one time when it was even becoming difficult to see. there was just snow everywhere.
it was amazing.
