Snooooow (part whatever)

I’m almost tired of seeing this on my Dashboard:


I say almost because I am a big kid really :)

Bristol has been hit quite badly by these snow storms, and I am beginning to forget what it is like to be able to walk down the road without slipping a little bit.

I’ve been one of the few people to make it into the office this week (I particularly enjoyed the notice on our Intranet yesterday saying that the servicedesk was operating with a skeleton staff due to the adverse weather conditions – because at the time I read this, I had just passed most of them outside on the lawn having a snowball fight and making sad little snowmen like this – )

I went to Bath last night to see Mark Watson at the Komedia (a review to come when I remember, because I’m crap like that) and as I walked back up the hill home at 11pm, I was covered in big flakes of snow. I didn’t really expect it to be that bad though. I was wrong


The above photos (taken from the article in the Sun here – yes, the Sun had the best pictures of it, shh) are of my road. See the tree in the first picture on the left? Thats at the top of my terrace.


The road was pretty much a car park when I got up this morning, which helped make up my mind about whether to go in today along with the (slightly over the top) statement from the police (or someone, I don’t know, someone official!) that noone should even leave their house in Bristol today. (I had to listen to the local radio this morning to find out what was happening…I had forgotten just how bad local radio is!)

Now I’ve actually got the day off, I’m very very bored. Sigh, what to do…

Snow, part 2

So I woke up this morning to a TwitterFon full of my London/South East friends all gloating that they had been building snowmen and having snowball fights at 2am while I was snug in my little bed. I looked at the iPhone weather thing, and once again Bristol was predicted to have snow. I turned on the radio, and managed to catch Greg James saying about how it was super snowy all over the country. I bounced out of bed and ran downstairs (because we have enormous windows -if Bristol was covered in snow, I wanted to get the best view possible)

Bristol, covered in snow? Are you having a laugh?!

As I walked down to Temple Meads to get the train to work, it started to lightly snow. And it’s not stopped all day! I’ve been refreshing Twitter at a ridiculous rate, catching up on the amounts of snow all over the city. It’s starting to come down quite well now, squeal!

Here’s my building at lunch time. It’s almost pretty!

This is the view from my window, just before we left for lunch. It looks crap doesn’t it? It was super snowy by the time I left the office at 5pm though!

And finally, because I never really need an excuse for a nice bit of cake, here is the KILLER billionaires shortbread from Sainos. It is a centimetre deep of caramel with chocolate chunks in it. And thats on top of some buttery shortbread, just to give it a base. So good, and yet I still feel a little sick looking at it.

No Snow

Its been so so cold in Bristol lately, so when I woke up this morning, as usual I checked my Twitter, checked my emails and then checked the weather widget thing on my iPhone. I was far far too excited to see this:

Look at that! A pretty little dusting of snow for today (also, a low of -6°C? Brilliant!). I turned on the radio and the news on Radio 1 was saying about how the South of England was all snowed up. I bounced out of bed (for reasons I can’t explain, since snow would mean that getting to work would be painful at best) and bounced to my window to be greeted with this view:

Damn you Bristol!! Why won’t you snow, like they said it would*?

* Yes, that line was only used so I had an excuse to post this video, and the lyrics (under the jump) I loved JJ72, since back in t’day when I was a naive 17 year old listening to indie music (and Chris Moyles in the afternoon) with a boy (ZOMG, I know, me near a boy. We may have even held hands at some point)
