When the ship goes down, you better be ready!

Soooooo, today is such an usual day in London. People haven't seen so much snow since 1991! It started yesterday evening - we were having dinner with some friends at a Portuguese restaurant not too far away.

I've been here for 3 years and I haven't seen so much snow since. In fact none of us have since it hasn't snowed that bad for 18 years. Or maybe the only British of the group has. Oh, well. Above: Cipri and I by a random car opposite the restaurant around 8pm. Below, me getting home around 8.15pm.

Below: the view from our living room around 9pm. Below: the view from our window today, around 10am, after part of the snow has melted already.
Above: the street I walk to go to the train station - and the street I almost fell. By the way, the trains were all cancelled and I have to work from home. Oh, and it's supposed to snow more and more tonight.


  1. Wow, the real snow and real winter is in England now. We have sunny days ....:(
    No skiing or skating!

  2. I wouldn't say REAL, but yeah according to the British standands it's pretty heavy. And of course people here are not prepared for that and there are no trains this morning again.

  3. No trains??? Lucky you then, another day at home no?

  4. Beautiful!
    We get that once or twice a year, you probably seen George's latest post.

  5. Hmm, it was beatiful wasnt it? And when it all started I said oh it will be nothing, over in 2 minutes!

    I am glad I am not the weather girl!


Uuuuh, so you decided to comment, huh? Well done!
