Last night in London the snowflakes started to fall from the clouds and quickly settled and covered the place. When I woke up this morning I quickly ran outside to capture this moment, it was so peaceful and beautiful. The first thought I had was, “I’m in Narnia. Now where is Mr. Tumnus, I would like a cup of tea and biscuits please.”
And it’s not just me, as to be expected loads of snow pictures uploaded onto Facebook.
FACT-The snow day will be the most talked about topic.
“O-M-G! Do you know it’s snowing? Did you see the snow?”
“Son of a gun…would you look at that..it is snowing!”
Bloggers let me tell you something, in England the talk of weather can be an easy conversation starter…for example when it’s raining or we experience a heat wave or when we see the tiny snowflakes fall.If you cannot think of anything to say, fear not, just say, “Can you believe it’s snowing?”
The way we talk about it makes it look like we have never seen snow, and people say it like we don’t know but trust me we have seen snow and we know it’s happening but yet it’s brand new information for us.
There are people who don’t love the snow and I know it can cause inconveniences. London always seems to come to a standstill.
Duh! Because it just snowed a few inches last night. We are unprepared as always to deal with the snow that everything shuts down and every shop and school closes.
I love it when its fresh snow, I hate it when it gets all black and slushy.I don’t know what it is but it is the magic of snow that gets me excited like a little kid, ready to get out there and randomly start singing Christmas songs like Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow and Walking in a winter wonderland 🙂
I have poor circulation so my hands and feet get real cold real quick. But I braved the chilly weather and put on my hat, scarf and gloves and by running back and forth to put my hands on the radiator.
I am quite pleased with myself because I have just made my first ever snowman and let me tell you he’s bringing sexy back.
“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?”
