A disaster of epic and unforseen proportions

If you're a resident of the British Isles, you will know that the entire place is in the grip of icy weather conditions. Frozen Britain is a catastrophe, Travel Chaos is the only news headline, nothing has happened anywhere else in the world for weeks, Christmas will be ruined, and despite it happening every frigging year, no one has been remotely prepared for the severity of the situation.

If, however, you're not a resident of the British Isles, you probably a) don't know we've had a bit of snow, or b) you can't fathom what all the hysteria is about. It's snow, not the apocalypse. Dress warm, clear your drive, and don't go walking on any frozen ponds. And wait for Dennis Quaid to turn up.


Meanwhile, enjoy some pictures of the snow in my neck of the woods.

Daisy being intrepid in snow which is for her, let's face it, knee deep

"Lamppost, woods, hills, my house." Or for those who don't recall the 1980s BBC Narnia serials, a lantern.

Jack forcibly pointing out that he's far more decorative than any silly Christmas presents

Frozen nuts (oh go on, I had to).

What's your favourite thing about snow?

  4. And I never get tired of seeing cats try to walk in the snow. Step, shake, step, shake, it's like the feline version of Strictly Come Dancing.

    That's before I even get started on the absolute delight of dogs in the snow.
