Still snooooowing. Is it ever going to stop?? This is the 8th day in a row we’ve had of it snowing, but at least it’s December now, that’s a bit more appropriate for snow I suppose. Did you know this is the earliest snow we’ve had in England for 17 years? Last time it snowed this early was my sister’s 1st birthday! And we lived in a house in the middle of nowhere (so we were stuck!) with no central heating, all we had were a few electric heaters…apparently when they gave my sister a bath then she used to turn blue with cold! (Fiiine I’ll post a picture from then hee hee! That’s my dad holding us =D)
So because England is useless in snow, I’ve been having problems getting to uni everyday. I have mostly managed but as I mentioned before the bus hasn’t turned up a few times and I’ve had one lecture cancelled so far (for which I did 6 hours work grrrr). This morning I managed to get to my Greek class, but while we were sat there we could see the snow swirling in a blizzard outside the window. This carried on for the whole hour and during my 10 minute walk back to the bus stop. We have some windows in my classroom (actually the Classics Library) that are those Velux window things (what are those really called??). Well anyway, we’re right at the top of this old building and these windows are just covered in snow so it’s dark in there! Apparently the boy in my Greek class had tried to open one of these windows in another classroom and had wedged it open with snow!!
These are my going…going…gone pictures!! Ben and I had to walk to Morrisons (about a mile) because we can’t get his car out! He couldn’t get to work today, our car park has a slope which his car just can’t climb! The blizzard had stopped by then so we were alright, but it is very cold! The snow is probably about 8 inches deep now I’d say, but I’m planning on going home this weekend where they are pretty much snowed in! Home is right on the edge of the North York Moors, pretty much the middle of nowhere! There’s a pub up there called Blakely which last year got so snowed in that customers’ cars and the road completely disappeared under about 4 foot of snow and they had to stay there for a few days! But that’s about 7 miles away and uphill, apparently home has about a foot, my sister sent me a picture and it does look awful (but very pretty =D). I just hope the trains are running so I can get back.
