We found out on Friday that we were due to get snow here in Wales over the weekend. Cue mass hysteria in our office. Us Brits really don’t deal well with snow. To be fair, the snow we get here in the UK isn’t like the nice, soft, fluffy stuff you get in the rest of Europe. Here it falls in big, slushy dollops and then freezes within hours, turning the roads into massive ice cubes.
For most of the weekend, the weather has just been wet, cold and incredibly windy. I braved it yesterday to walk to the market and the gym, but then retreated inside to enjoy a hot bowl of homemade leek and potato soup.
The first snow flakes, although still very wet and slushy, started to fall here in Cardiff at about 8.30pm tonight. I’ll be up early in the morning to see if it’s settled and find out if we’re snowed in!
