Last Saturday we had a relatively thick snowfall early in the morning but it was all gone by midday. This morning our area was blanketed by snow again but it wasn't a surprise as the white stuff started to fall late in the evening before.
Now being a usual working weekday I didn't have much spare time to hang around and take photos of the garden, my priority was to get to the train station. But I know that by midday most of it is likely to be gone again and all we'll have are memories of the snow.
What to do? Well take photos in a rush of course. And I meant proper rush as only had a spare couple of minutes before I had to go so I took a few shots from our bedroom window and also from the sun room. It was just after seven in the morning so was still dark and had to use the flash.
Alas no time to venture out further into the garden so I had to content myself with views from the house. At least I have some proof and reminders that it did snow here today.
Leaving the house I managed to take these extra photos using my phone...
Time was fast running out so I had to rush to the train station. While briskly walking I was thinking that trains might be delayed because public transport in the UK can sometimes go on a standstill even with just a 'fleck of snow'. And guess what? Let's just say it was a stressful commute to work in central London.
Fortunately going back wasn't too bad. And when I got home nearly all of the snow from the morning were gone, bar a few clumps dotted around. Good! I like snow but the novelty of it very soon wears out. I prefer my snow in the garden here then gone relatively quick....in almost a flash.
