snow uh oh...

So, the good news is that my test for Mono came back negative, so I must have just had some horrible viral thing. Tuesday was my first day back to work in about 3 weeks, so no sooner was I back and thinking about getting back into the routine when the snow came... Unfortunately since then I haven't been able to get into work because the of the weather, roads have been horrendous, the only bus service cancelled, schools closed and I have 18 inches of snow in my garden!

snow tracks...
Still, it does look beautiful, even if it is freezing, (my neighbour said her thermometer was showing -15 degrees yesterday morning - yikes!)

iced...

Still, we have supplies and are warm, so that's a good thing and also pretty much everywhere in the UK is having the same kind of weather. The funny thing is, this kind of weather seems to bring out the best in people - everyone pulling together to help out neighbours and friends, so it seems much more bearable. I hope the weather is being kind wherever you are...

Glad you are feeling better. I love the snow. It is so unusual for us to have so much isn't it? I love the effect it has on people too. I was wondering today if that would carry on if it set in for a while! I suppose it might. Stay warm!

It so needs to snow here so I can get a day off work. Oh wait I have access to work from home. YUCK no such pleasure of getting out of work for me.

Stay inside and keep warm and well.
