We haven't had snow in my Region for the last couple of years. The weather mam/women keeps predicting snow and it always misses our Region. I got very excited when I woke up to a small covering of snow this Tuesday. I know it's nothing compared to what my friends around the World have had but it's lovely to see some snow. Like I said- I like snow but I was worried about getting to work as lately, the Council hasn't been gritting the footpaths and car parks lately and I am afraid of slipping and falling!! How embarrassing would that be!!
Thankfully, the roads were gritted and clear of traffic.
|No traffic at the lights.|
I took some pictures from the platform to kill the time. I love watching trains especially the long freight trains carrying loads from the Sea Port.
Once off the train, the walk to work was very pretty and pleasant. A covering of snow always makes everything look pretty. I love the feel of the cold on my face and love my quiet walk to work passing some amazing houses. There wasn't enough snow to build a snowman but I passed quite a few kids having a snow ball fight. Their laughter and chatter always cheers me up. The confidence with which they run and skid/skate on the snow and ice makes me wish I too could do that.
Do you enjoy going out in the snow?? Do share your snow stories.
