It’s fab when it happens isn’t it? Enjoy to Max!
Think I’ve had enough now (near llangollen) to be honest, slippy icy roads up steep hills to get to aged people and their pets even with a small 4x4 gets a tad wearing, especially on clutch and brakes.
But I do long for the pure silence we had in the last three big snows, 2010/11, 2013 and March last year, no traffic, no noise, just the whisper of snow falling.
That is what I love about snow is that it dampness down background noises. Even if the roads do not get blocked in Thurrock at least when it snows heavily, they drive much slower than normal. I notice at night after a heavy fall of snow, there is a fluorescent glow coming from the snow making the night look less dark than usual.The snow for Thurrock came 24 hours later than it was forecasted which happened last year as the Met Office weather station is in Dartford in Kent. I hope that there will be lots more snow where the whole of the UK as well as surrounding islands will be covered in the lovely white stuff.
