CommentsYou're right - I laughed!!! Just be glad you didn't get the snows like we had in Wyoming..... Those 5' to 8' snowdrifts are the pits.

Well, Anna, just a few days ago I was thinking it had been awhile since you posted, and in only a few days here are TWO posts. This one is delightful - yes, LOVELY! The snow lady is quite fine, sans birds plucking, I'm happy to say.
People talking to one another? Reading?! Even the thought seems to relax tensions this reader wasn't even particularly aware of.
The post preceding this one was welcome, if for different reasons. Thank you for good reads.

A winter postcard
Posted by Anna Grayson on Feb 5, 2012 at 08:32 AM
From London, England
London, England—When it snows in London, it’s a magical time. Last night it became more Switzerland than the city by the Thames. Any street or park that has even the minutest hint of an incline has a sled on it today. And the British are actually talking to one another in the street, even if it’s just to say ‘Oooch it’s cold today, but rather lovely’. ‘Lovely’ is a superlative for a Brit – it shows they are really happy. I can hear shrieks of delight coming from the kids in my street.
I’ve taken some pictures in my neighbourhood which I think will make some of you hardy North Americans smile. I can almost hear you chuckling ‘Snow – you call that snow? Why that’s a mere dusting of icing sugar on a strudel!’ That may be so, but it’s enough to shake off the mundane and steer even the most hardened Londoner into memories of childhood and stories of winter wonderlands. We were issued a level 3 weather warning (we only have 4) for this. I can hear another wallop of laughter from across the pond.More...
