Snow!

It snowed today and I didn't get any pictures (so I've borrowed this one!). I thought about taking the camera out and snapping a few pics, but I got into a panic about having to drive in the snow, which I always find mildly traumatic. True to form my journey didn't let me down, it began with the car sliding down a hill and me having to stop it with the handbrake when the wheels locked. This was a rather dramatic moment as I was approaching a junction and I'm sure the drivers crossing my path were oblivious to my plight. Needless to say once that was over I drove very slowly whilst clutching the steering wheel tightly! I didn't bother with the shortcuts - too many hills - so I arrived at work JUST in time. The kids were sliding around and having a huge snowball fight in the playground and for a split second I was tempted to put my bags down and join in. Then I remembered the time I broke my wrist when 'ice skating' in the playground at junior school; so I decided I to take the professional stance and dodge the snowballs, head inside and make a cup of coffee!
By the time school was over, the snow had melted, which meant the journey home was less treacherous. It also means I have no pictures of me and my SL's out in the cold, yet; this is England and it is feeling rather cold tonight...

Oh the snow. I haven't seen snow in a very long time. I don't think I could function in snow right now I've been in Miami for too long!

Creyole, I tried but it all melted! We haven't really had any since. I like the idea of being snowed in, like some of you guys have been...

Miami, oh Sistalocd, one day I'm sure I'll make it there. It's on my list of places to see.

Sony, it's all gone now. Just a distant memory...
It's still freezing though!

Tai, thanks for dropping by! An Arsenal supporter eh, I could tell by reading your blog that you had good taste!
