Last week, a minuscule 2 cms of snow, caused London to halt. With about 10 cms of snow today, the city is turning white, grey and very still. People appear to disappear inside their woolies. My umbrella has a nasty habit of turning into a U-shaped cup. Before you know it the flakes turn to ice cold water on the jacket and seep through to the inside.
It’s easy to see why Comfort-Food sales will go up. And as I attempted taking photographs, my hands were curiously steady because they were frozen. I have to admit that London does look slightly pretty, but the horror of walking on ice, mud and slush is not very endearing. For some reason, Itunes picks Crowded House’s “Always take the weather with you” [YouTube Link] while I am writing this post. Vague lyrics fill the room.
Julius caesar and the roman empire
Couldnt conquer the blue sky
Theres a small boat made of china
Going nowhere on the mantlepiece
