Jon and I made the trek into work as some of the trains were still running and we walked through 12 inches. My little legs didn't know what had hit them! My Dad told me that he had measured the depth of snow in his garden and it was at 16 inches (40cm!) Our office was only just open and the decision was taken at 10:30am to close the site as it just wasn't safe to be there. Only 7 people managed to make it in! We have to wait until the morning to see whether they decide to open again but I have my fingers crossed that they don't!
I thought I'd share with you some photos I took when I got home. It was still snowing when I took them but it doesn't show up.
The first photo is outside our front door. You normally don't get this vien as we have a large bush, but he has been flattened by the weight of the snow.
I can't believe that people are attempting to drive in these conditions. Most people we saw either abandoned their cars or were skidding and slidding all over the road. Do they not listen to the warnings??? They're putting so many people at risk. Sorry, rant over!
I hope everyone else is safe and warm.
