Delicate snow

I like snow, a lot, well usually. Unfortunately I am hoping to fly on Thursday so being told we would get 10-35cm of snow over night and tomorrow wasn't actually good news. However, at the moment we have a delicate dusting and the snow seems to be staying fairly clear of Heathrow too. Fingers crossed that it will work out. I had to share this picture of Trogdor, he is the only one of our cars with an artistic layer of snow at the moment. I think it looks great just as it is now highlighting all the important areas.

Despite still being ill I had to go out and enjoy the snow and I do feel better for the fresh air. It was magical being the first people to walk around in the snow, and quite odd. Normally at least one dog walker beats us to it. I did got for normal boots though so people won't be looking at apparently bear foot prints. I thought it was more important to have warm feet than confuse the neighbours.

The quilt made it off in time, but I did forget to take a better picture, sorry. I was more concerned about getting it delivered than picture taking. If I have a brain I will ask someone to do it for me tomorrow, if not it will just have to be the one that got away.

I've got my fingers crossed that the airports stay clear.

Trogdor does look fab with that little bit of snow though.

Hope you're better soon. |'m torn between impracticality (the snow does look beautiful and I did spend some time yesterday drawing shapes made by snow on fences, washing-lines and so on) and helplessness - I've just got drenched getting six inches of snow off my car (and my poor cat Django who has a reall daft streak went out in it and discovered it came up to his shoulders. We plan to spend the rest of the day by the fire (in his case) and in front of the sewing-machine (in mine). Hope you get to travel OK!
