We've been snowed-in this week, which is not at all normal for this time of year.
Even Goldsmith (outside Trinity College)has never seen anything like it! It bucketed down all day today, we must have had 12cm or more!
But, oh, it's so exciting! We've topped up all the feeders, and lots of hungry birds have been feasting.
From "the home of the black stuff"... where, if you believe the (Guinness) ad they "dream of a white one"... this is the back gate, not the one in the ad.
Some buses have been running. I admire the drivers who keep things moving, braving the elements, and being patient with people who haven't used a bus since they were students, maybe 20 years ago. That's not me, of course!. Roads have been icy, icy, icy. This looks like it's wet, but it was ice.
And my car refused to leave the driveway.So I walked most of the 5 miles to and from school. I saw some lovely sights en route, and having the right gear, it wasn't really a hardship. I love walking in snow! Might have taken a break on one of these benches, but they were covered in snow!
So many photo opportunities, so many thoughts of "this will be great for the blog".
That's it for today. I took a video of the heavy snowfall, will try to upload that tomorrow.
School's out now for the rest of the week, hurrah!
