Let is snow, let it snow, let it snow

(Oops - wrote this in the middle of last week and managed not to post it - the silver lining would be that I've had more photos from our students, so now they're all in one post.)

Snow! Well, it's mostly slush and grit right now, but Monday was my first ever official snow day, as so much of the transport network was down, none of us were getting into work. This is a really interesting post on why, from the point of view of a tube driver.

Meanwhile, our students made good use of the day - there were some excellent Britain-related snow-creations:
This snowman is well travelled around central London. This tea-drinking snowman is a temporary inhabitant for a traditional red phone box while this Snow Queen graciously receives her courtiers and creators .

Moving beyond mere royalty, there's a snow houses of parliament and a Snowhenge of substantial size and occupation (complete with snow druid ).

Thank you so much to all the students who shared photos - if you have more, link in the comments, or send me an email!

(Meanwhile, out in east London, my neighbours were adding to the ranks of supporters for our local football team.)


In other news, the thing I intended to post today:
