3a Lichfield Grove at 7am
Monday the 2 February 09, London experiences its worst snow in 18 years AND WE WERE THERE. At 6am Anita woke and thought we may have slept in, such was the light coming though the windows, but no: overnight it has snowed and over a foot of snow carpeted the landscape and the reflection has caused it to look unsually light. All the bus services were cancelled and the streets almost empty. All the airpost were closed, train service restricted and even the classic Black Taxis were scarce, but in a city of 10 million there are always a million or so hardy souls and Anita and I made it to work without too much hassle. We were in the minority and at 1pm the office was closed and we were went home. The roads had turned to slush and it was starting to look dirty but as I write at 7pm it is still snowing. But enough the photos speak for themselves
