Snow Day

London came to a standstill yesterday after about 6 in of snow fell - the most in 18 years! When trains were working again today, I made my way into work, running through Hyde, Green and St James parks to work. VERY slippery underfoot where it had been packed down and refrozen, so I ran in the deep stuff... well relatively.


There was more snow on the south side of London, and colleague from work sent me photos of Ashford Station, where he waited for a train that never arrived. Even today, there were very few people in the office!

You know, we had almost nothing in Lincolnshire! Unfair.. Though YakTrax seem unobtainable in this country so perhaps it's better this way...

That is so funny how places are different and it depends on what they are used to or geared up for. 6" of snow here would just be business as usual...no big deal.
It is beautiful stuff though huh?

Is that Hyde Park where you are standing? I stay in Kensington when I'm over there and I think I recognize running by that statue.

That lovely white stuff has been playing merry hell with my knees. I do like to see it and my wife and I love to walk in it. But, it's a bugger to run in. Great photographs. You have a good eye.
