But did you know, That when it snows

Snow in London
View from my morning train …

What a pleasant surprise when I walked out of the door this morning. While I was expecting palm trees to be popping out of the ground soon, London is a bit white in stead. And it’s amazing to watch the differences between a city like Aarhus in Denmark, where they are covering the streets in salt as soon as there is a 0.00042 % chance of snow. And London, that didn’t seem to be prepared for snow at all. Result : the world looks bright. Train traffic is a mess. Buses connecting the train station to my office in Croydon did not run because there was a little bit of snow on the roads. (Do they have snow machines at all in this city?) And half of my colleagues stuck because public transport is a mess all around.

I don’t mind, I love snow. Again I managed to get around the worst of problems, I had a nice walk from the station to the office, I am inside with a cup of tea, the milky way, and I hope lots more snow will fall these days.

My eyes become large and,
The light that you shine can be seen

  1. Thank you, and you.
    Most of it is melted away now unfortunately, but it was a nice start of the day. :)

  2. Oh, public transport in the UK only operates between temperatures of 9 and 18 degrees centigrade. Anywhere outside of that range, and it’s anyone’s guess what we’ll manage.

  3. Forgive me for finding that a charming thing about the UK. I find people getting annoyed about public transport always entertaining to watch. I can’t see the point in getting angry about it at all. I mean what is a 10 minute delay on a life time?

    And don’t worry, in Denmark I have had similar issues with public transport in the fall, because leaves somehow interfered with train traffic. Don’t ask me how and why.
