Snow Angel

Just made my first snow angel of the season. :D I didn’t go to work today. I did try. Got up at 7am as usual, made breakfast, got dressed, packed my lunch, all the while watching BBC Breakfast and checking Twitter and travel websites for updates. Katie also happened to be on Twitter while I was doing all this and tried checking bus websites if there was any news for me. Turns out that the almost foot of snow that we got was enough to grind everything to a halt in Sheffield. Even the very few buses that were reported as running limited services (none of which reached my neck of the woods as far as I could tell) were cancelled by 9:30am (and still aren’t running as I type this at approx 2pm). So even if I had made it to work, I don’t think I would’ve made it back by bus. And I really don’t fancy the idea of walking over 3 miles in almost knee-deep snow.

We cleared off our car last night at about 6pm. This is what it looked like at 7:30-ish this morning:

Doesn’t really look like we did anything at all. And we cleared it off again just now, but since it’s still snowing, it’ll probably look like that again in a few hours. But yay for snow angels! Later I might try convincing O that we need to build a snowman in our back garden. :D
