Winter Wonderland - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
Winter Wonderland
I hate being right at times...

Last night I was talking about the possibility of snow.  It's been on the news and the weathermen have been predicting it since the weekend.  I said last night, "It doesn't matter how much falls, it'll still bring the public transport system to a stop."

This morning I woke to this:

It's very pretty and my inner child got all excited.  It's a nice even covering of about an inch.  It may have drifted in places to almost an inch and a half!  It still didn't surprise me when I got to the station to find it chock-a-block and the sign saying "Severe Delays"

It's just as well I set out early this morning... I had planned on being in before 9... but managed (a still early for me) 9:30.

I met my brother's mate Ricky at the bus stop last night coming home ... we were both saying about the likelihood of snow .. saw him again this morning, both talked of the likelihood of trains being shite ... I got in at 10am .. you beat me in!

c2c seemed to manage a normal sevice despite the snow... once I managed to get to Upminster it was fine.

when I got up this morning it was still snowing and like you got all excited as a kid....then when I drove to the station and nearly crashed my excitment wained a bit....then the train journey to work took that last smidge of happiness out of me and now here I am at work and wondering how long the journey home will take!

OMG - look how pretty! It doesn't snow there often, does it?

It can go a year or two without snow, and when we do get it - it's unlikely to settle for long if at all.
