Easily the most snow Iíve seen in London. Predictably, everythingís disrupted; no buses, trains, the odd tube perhaps but no-one really minds. People I pass in the street are smiling at me, holding fistfuls of the stuff. Schools are closed and there are kids everywhere, building snowmen with their parents and pelting each other with snowballs. Thereís no rush to get in today. I stand on the common taking pictures and watching a couple race each other on skis. Iím always amazed how a blanket of thick snow can transform the greyest street into a scene from a Christmas card.
