7 January 2010 – snow day part two!

Not really the weather for going out in the garden

Not really the weather for going out in the garden

The snow kept falling on and off until early evening yesterday. It only stopped when the temperature dropped drastically at about four o’clock, then things started to ice over. The TV news was full of ice warnings and people were told to stay indoors. Commando phoned his manager and was told not to come in because the roads were blocked. This morning I had a text from Primo to say the office was closed so not to bother going in. This is turning out to be rather a good week, if you don’t count the horrible journey home on Tuesday night.

We spent the whole day sitting in front of the fire not doing much at all. It was bliss. The local news had an article about a gang of about fifty lads not far from us who’d built giant snowballs and blocked the road with them. As cars slowed to try to avoid them they pelted them with snowballs. It may have seemed like good fun to the lads but I’d think it was pretty frightening for the drivers.
