There’s no business like snow business

We’ve had a few inches of snow here in the UK this last week or so. We’re having an extended cold snap, we’re told. Should that then be a cold snaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap?

Anyway, some places have had more than others but one thing remains clear. The UK cannot handle snow. Even a little bit. Even a couple of inches.

Traffic comes to a standstill, roads become treacherous as there isn’t enough grit and salt to make them safe.  People start panic buying at the first sign of snow and all the shops run out of bread and milk and all the basics.

For the record, Caitlin took the photos.  Well all but the last one in which she stars.  I took that with the back door ajar.

I also used the back door as a shield while taking this…

Hmm, what is he doing?

Looks like a snowball.  Heh heh, wonder which of the kids will get it?!

Gulp!  Oh no!

Quick!  Snap photo and slam door shut before it hits me!*

*In case you wondered, it missed 🙂

    stay warm!
