The White Stuff

We don’t get ‘proper’ snow very often here (gulf stream, island salt air etc), so it was a surprise to wake up to about 3-4 inches on the ground this morning. Unsurprisingly, our completely unprepared community has ground to a complete halt, in conditions any Russian or Canadian would find laughable.

It doesn’t stop me from going to work of course, or my wife who also only has a short walk to work. Our environmentally friendly lifestyle clearly doesn’t pay dividends in this particular instance.

I’m also now finding that my internet speeds are in post-school molasses mode, I guess because so many people are either home working or just killing time on the net today. So snow clearly clogs up the intertubes too 😕
