1 day of snow: Britain grinds to halt

It snowed again last night and this morning. I was out a-sweeping and a-gritting before breakfast - all good manual work for me. Our Lady of the Rosary school was open - the Headteacher is against shutting the school for relatively trivial reasons. Apparently lots of schools in Bexley were closed. ("Why?)

Paul, a regular commenter, sent me this picture of himself, children, and completed snowman. Children in southern England don't often get the chance to build a snowman. I once took some 17 year olds to the Faith Conference at Stonyhurst when it snowed oop North. They had never built a snowman before in their lives.
