Snow day


in Daily updates, Oxford

Snow and dog in the University Parks

You know those days when you wake up to find the world unexpectedly blanketed with snow? As a Vancouverite, I really don’t, so this morning is especially surprising. I am glad I peeked out early enough to realize that cycling today is a non-starter. Also, early enough to be able to grab a few ‘pristine snow’ pictures of Oxford.

[Update: 1:30pm] College taken over by young ballistics experts from nearby secondary school. Staff, student body in headlong retreat, scattering in all directions. All thoughts of pristine snow banished by ceaseless barrage.

Also, a perfect excuse to wear my hiking boots and the sheep’s wool Connemara socks I purchased in Ireland.

My last hundred visitors have been accessible in such a way for quite some time.
