There's been a bit of snow in the UK this week, which means that people have slightly lost their minds. It happens every year. Somehow we don't seem to be a country that's prepared for snow - even though it arrives most years.
After a couple of days of icing-sugar type dandruff - today it actually settled. (As far as I'm aware, it's still there now; it's too dark to go and check). I went into the garden to take some photos, just because I could.
Trains have been slightly disrupted. At least one train company stopped trains early last night, in expectation of snow - which then didn't materialise. I believe they apologised to commuters today.
The one thing about snow, is the way it deadened all the sounds around. Our garden is only small, and surrounded by other gardens - but it was so quiet this afternoon.
And the sky was so blue......
Leaves coming through the snow is the best definition of optimism I can think of

Mr Knitty set off early this morning in a taxi, expecting to have problems. He didn't. There were extra people on the rota as 'snow cover' - but everybody who was expected, turned up.

Mr Knitty and I are off to the theatre tomorrow. The last time I went to this particular theatre was in the middle of summer - and it was sweltering. I'm not sure if I'll need extra layers tomorrow - or if we're going to have problems with the buses.
The one thing I do know - it's times like this, that I'm glad to be a knitter!
