The snow has slowed us down, made our lives move in slow motion, made us prioritise our journeys.
"No unnecessary travel" is the mantra.
So instead of a New Year shopping frenzy before the return to school (tomorrow, if weather permits), we're spending time together, calmly looking out at a pure and pristine landscape, undisturbed by the usual rush of daily life.
Sustenance for the soul.
What a wonderful start to 2010.
