Just a quick update

More later, but I’m having a great time over here.

Last night, I got my wish and there was snow. So beautiful and quite different to my experiences in England. The bit that got me this morning is that even though we’re on a small, quiet street way off the main thoroughfares, the snowplough had already been through and the roads are clear. There simply aren’t ploughs in Britain except for the odd one or two in Scotland and even the main roads rarely get gritted or salted. The snow last night would have caused chaos today in England yet it’s business as usual over here. It makes me a bit more confident about deal with winter to know that after the snow has stopped falling, the roads will be quickly made safe.

The only bad thing? Torchwood tonight and I can’t watch it 😦 I will have to avoid all spoilers until I get back to England next week. Waah!

    Well I an thoroughly jealous – not only do you get to see lovely Auntie Suzanne, you also have my favourite type of snow (Canadian!) Wish I was there, really need a holiday. Work is driving me nuts!!
    Give Sue lots of hugs from me, and Brad too of course if he manages to make it down.
