me: ooh!

Snow Day

In case anyone failed to notice the ill-contained excitement of their friends in Southern England, we have had snow. Snow falls in significant quantities here perhaps once or twice a year and it isn't usually so obliging as to fall at the weekend, so everyone's gone a little mad about it. We had about 10 cm of it in Cambridge. The bloke & I went for a walk around Coldhams Common. We met many ecstatic children and dogs. And a punk rock snowman. Then we came home and met Telstar, who was thrilled about the snow. Sputnik...not so much, as you will see under the cut.

Since he possesses the attention span of a cat, Telstar's snowball vigil lasted exactly as long as it took him to work out that we were headed back into the nice toasty warm house.
