Snow is a rarity here in Cardiff, as it is a city warmed by trade and industry on the soft south coast of Wales. So when we do get snow, I am soon out in the garden with my camera – even though there is not a lot to see.
The snow fell yesterday, but I saw it in the garden only as a pink glow before dawn as I was then going to be in work all day. The fronts of my thighs are still aching from the strange way I had to plod along the main streets in order not to slip in the slushy snow.
Other parts of South Wales have had it much worse and some people couldn’t make it to work, but in Cardiff the snow is quickly slip sliding away.
For the record, here’s some of the white stuff from today, plus some of the birds in the garden.
I expect the weather here will now freeze, which will make the already-ugly slush an even worse hazard…
