And More Snow...
It just kept coming down yesterday, all day, keeping Dave, Olga and I indoors and stranding travelers all over London. We had a friend waiting at Heathrow Airport to take off for Beijing. I'm still not sure whether his plane got off the ground.
I went out in the afternoon and braved the falling snow for a walk down Portobello Road.
People were contending with it as best they could. That poor person trying to sell crepes -- talk about hopeful! (And persistent!)
Some of London's more temperate foliage looked a bit strange buried beneath snow.
There's a 30 percent chance of more snow today, mainly in the afternoon. By New York standards we haven't had all that much, but the English are more readily paralyzed by snow, which doesn't fall with the regularity here that it does in the northeast U.S.
Why do I have a feeling my substitute request line may be ringing off the hook?
