100103 Snow And The Tipping Point



We are getting close to the tipping point : that point at which the photographic delights of having all this snow around is more than outweighed by the dreadful inconvenience of attempting to lead a normal life whilst slipping, sliding and freezing all over the place. Tomorrow - when I attempt to drive four twenty year olds 75 miles south to East Midlands Airport - will reveal whether we have passed the tipping point or not. Let us hope that, for once, the weather forecast is right.

Too right Alan! Having slipped once on the ice I'm less confident now and still it seems to get icier. I wonder why the council never thinks to grit pavements? Wishing you a safe journey to the airport and back.
(Ha! these word verifications are a laugh - today's is 'unlimpi'... well, I would if I hadn't slipped.)

It's fun(ish) and never lasts for long and of course is really just a NORMAL winter but we think it's a hard one because of all of the unseasonably mild one's we've had recently.
