The Day the Snow came
Our Snow started on Sunday 1st February evening, it continued until in was Monday morning. There were no transport running, the buses and the trains were not running. The councils didn't grit the pavements or the main roads and the government said as usual, we don't get this type of snow, however it snowed earlier in January and maybe not as thick, but other parts of the country had a lot of it. So in London, we got it. People didn't go to work, the schools were closed and children, young and old and I am including adults like myself and daughter had fun!!. We went to the park, we took pictures, and the park was fun and snow people were made, giant snow and woman. men. women and children were busy making things with the snow.
The goverment complained that the day off work cost the economy billions of money, the recession would deepen even further. People still continued to have fun. Teenage boys and young men were planning who they were going to ambush, battle lines at the ready and teenage girls were with their dogs sliding on the ice and dogs were positively excited also. Despite the destruption to traffic, we all praised God for the snow and asked him to send us some more.
