It was pretty the first day – but not any more. In fact you would be pardoned for thinking that we are now totally fed up with it. We’re talking about snow, of course. Let me summarise for you – it’s white, it’s cold, it falls out of a gunmetal grey sky. As you can see, it’s inclined to be a bit samey.
Once you get over the novelty of it (that takes about five seconds) you find enthusiasm for more of it hard to come by. Yet more of it is what we have had for most of this week.
I could add to the superabundance of snow photos currently littering the internet, but I have decided to give you all a break.
Admittedly we don’t have that much snow, I think the last time we were dredged (as in icing sugar) to this depth of suffering was around the 2009/2010 winter. So I suppose we shouldn’t be so surprised to be completely unprepared for it.
But we always are – both surprised and unprepared.
I thought this nice picture of a purple crocus, that I took last weekend, would cheer us all up.
