The first few days of real snow were absolutely terrible, because it was around zero degrees at that time and the snow was turning to ice. Needless to say, ice is bloody slippery. I had such a miserable time slipping all over the place, hurting my wrist and bum and feeling so unsure of how to walk. My daily commute normally takes about 25 minutes, but it was taking up to an hour to make the journey because I was walking like a 90-year-old woman with two broken hips and a bad set of glasses. But, the story isn't all bad; now I have a new pair of boots with better grip and great insulation, and it's colder here now so the snow is more like powder and hence is not as slippery. Now my commute is down to about 35 minutes and the feeling of dread that used to accompany any remote thought of walking outside is subsiding.
And it's really pretty! All the white everywhere looks stunning. But unfortunately there isn't much time to see it, because the sun isn't coming up so much now. Case in point: these pictures were taken at about 3pm (and I edited them to make them lighter).
Only four months of winter left to go. :-)
