This is Barkingside just before midnight on February 1st. It’s set to snow all night and there’s a rumour of 6 inches.
Dawn out the back:
The snow isn’t good snowball snow but it would be good sledging snow. To go sledging is one of my ambitions but I don’t think I’d be fulfilling it this year.
UPDATE – my workplace is closing for the day. Glad I stayed put. The bus network is entirely suspended, there are severe delays on the Central Line and South Eastern trains aren’t operating. More pics.
Cleared the bird table (tray on a stick) several times already today, only to see its goodies disappear into the crops of Avigdor and Annette the wood-pigeons. They generally take anything I leave on a surface sturdy enough to support their hefty bodies. So I cleared a space on the ground and the gang of starlings had a bite – but the prospect of a cat attack stops them from relaxing.
I notice our insulation is good, unlike my back-opposite neighbours (who have extended up and sideways, keep asking me to cut down our tree, and always leave their lights on – their house looks like the Blackpool Illuminations).
UPDATE: 3rf Feb. Work still closed???!!! God, this country is going down hill.
