Some time before dawn today, I woke up and looked out of our bedroom window. Our security light had come on, which usually means one of the neighbours’ cats is walking across our patio. Sometimes it means there is a fox out there, so it’s always worth a look. This morning I didn’t see whatever it was that had triggered the light, but what I could see was that it was snowing. Again. At that point, everything just looked like it had been dusted with icing sugar, but more snow was falling.
A few hours later the snow was thick, and covered every surface – all the trees and plants, rooftops – even people’s washing lines. And it was still snowing.
We got up, put on our wellies, and headed to the park to see what that looked like covered in snow (even though it’s a sight we’ve seen many times this winter). Because this time the snow had arrived on a weekend, the park was full of people building snowmen. It’s been a very sunny day, so it’s all melting quickly – I don’t think those snowmen will be around for long.
