Crunchy Snow

Today, as promised by the weather sites, we have had light snow. Stephen and I went out for a walk at about 4.00 p.m. and it was just thick enough to sound crunchy. We just walked around via the footpath, then took the paved path through the park, up to the chemist and hospital, then along that road home. The official temperature is -5 degrees. We had wrapped up well and found it quite lovely.

This morning we had our usual slow breakfast, then showers, then started packing. I made a big mess on the bed, loading up most of the things to go into my suitcase and other bags. I’ve just now (5.30ish) finished for today. There is still stuff to put into the bag, but I have done some sorting, especially making sure that there are no batteries in the big suitcase that I will check in.

The snow was predicted to start at 10.00 a.m., then it was pushed back to 1.00 p.m. Stephen was the first to notice. He finished off editing Eversley’s pages for her book and I was entering them into digital copies to send to her. Rae has apparently just got back with her edits as well, so the timing was good.

We haven’t needed the car today, and I’m glad it snowed because I said that we shouldn’t set out in case of snow, so it would have been a pity if my concern had been wasted.

    • I’ve been looking at that, being even more obsessive about weather forecasts than the English! -5 doesn’t feel all that cold to us, I think we’ve gradually adjusted. Our little studio flat is so cosy that we usually have one window slightly open and heaters off, of course, overnight.
