So it snowed recently.
In many countries that is not a big deal. In the UK it is national news. Discussing the weather is something we Brits do often, which is weird because the weather does not change much here. It is either raining, snowing, raining, sunny, raining or raining. We just like warm temperatures with clear blue skies and we are ill-prepared (and terrified) of anything else.
The snow arrived on Friday 18 January. Major roads were gritted making two-thirds of my journey to work relatively easy. Then I turned off the main road and on to a quiet road which had seen very few cars that morning. After slipping, sliding and stalling several times the Megmobile (right) gave up and I ended up at my parents’ house until the snow cleared.
So the moral of the story is – don’t complain about the weather but don’t risk it either. Just prepare for it and enjoy it. Here’s a video of my dog enjoying/eating the snow.
