... though later on it became more like this.
Sirius's opinion of the weather...
On the positive side, however, THE COLLEGE HAS BEEN CLOSED both yesterday and today!! You can imagine how upset and frustrated I have been, being unable to get to work and having to stay at home and read books. Disaster! But I coped - the wartime spirit and all that.
Both days, I trudged up through the snowheaps to visit my mum. Look - blue sky against snowy branches. Pretty.
This is the view from my mum's front door.
This is the view as I trudged back again.
Our back garden, gradually being effaced under a blanket of white.
This is the front garden - I had to think hard to orient myself here - looking towards the hedge. Path to the left (theoretically). Driveway across the back. I keep digging a path through the snow and then it keeps getting obliterated again.
Still, I went out yesterday to do a bit of hunter-gathering. Christmas cake ingredients...
Today I've done a whole pile of marking and feel rather smug.
Our car, still up in the adjacent street, has become walled in by huge heaps of snow that people have piled round it while digging their driveways clear. It's very frustrating that the main roads are reasonably clear while the side roads are impassable. I think we'll just have to stay inside, reading and reading and blogging and blogging while we wait for spring... Except of course that the buses are running fairly normally, down at the bottom of the lane. Pity.
