If I were a romantic.... OK, I am but not when it comes to climate issues...but IF I had romantic notions about the weather, I might tell you that this morning, snow is falling like bugs from the sky and that it's cute to see parents pulling their kids to kindergarden on sledges. But it's not. It's dark, despite all the white stuff, it's wet, and I think its never going to stop snowing.
My husband is going to arrive back from Stavanger tonight to find his car marooned behind a snow bank. Worse, if Mr Snow Plough man doesn't turn up today before 2 PM, because he's too busy clearing important roads and not our little lane, like yesterday, I might have to resort to a sledge myself for child transportation. Or even worse - a bus and my feet. Ba humbug.
