Proper Snow

P1050003.jpg

The view from my first floor landing, Olympus jammed against the window frame and the flash turned off, a few moments ago… proper snow in South Oxfordshire – a rare event.

There’s something rather eerie about the yellow of the street lights on the snow… or maybe that’s just the effect of the book of HP Lovecraft short stories I have been reading. Could the snow herald the arrival of some vile squamous beast from another dimension? Probably not. But I might build a snow Cthulhu tomorrow just to be on the safe side.

    Snow is pretty rare on the Wirral so today was a pleasant surprise,even getting to work, which for me consisted of outdoor work was fun.

    Blasted snow is screwing me for being unable to get to the first real meetings of the year…

    It looks like that here too Fleet. There goes today and tomorrows income! A day of thank you letter writing methinks šŸ™‚

    No snow here. It was 40C yesterday.

    Thankfully cooler today. But still no snow.

  5. Never eat yellow snow is my tip for the day….

    Thud – we don’t get a lot in Didcot (even compared to the rest of South Oxfordshire) – I believe the Power Station causes some sort of micro-climate effect.

    Scrobs – I managed to get to office, although I was pretty much alone on the train into Paddington, and after gloating about how the Brompton got me to and from the station in 15cm of snow this morning coming home the ice seems to have broken the gears šŸ˜¦

    Lils – Must be beautiful around your way though!

    6000 – I’m sure the lack of snow must be very disappointing but no doubt a cold beer and something succulent on the barbecue will be of some consolation!

    Lakes – very wise. There was some particularly unpleasant yellow snow in Hyde Park left behind by the Household Cavalry on their morning ride (I am hoping from the horses rather than the Troopers themselves!)
