Made it to the office!

East London Snow
Even made it just about on time! Had to watch a Victoria train go (bravely) and pray that the following Redhill service wouldn't also be cancelled (it wasn't), got on it and it was (as I had hoped) actually the late London Bridge service and was quite empty to boot (as everyone else had piled on the Victoria train)...result...!

You can see East London above, still carpeted in snow, as the train sped through Merstham, Purley, etc. I cursed myself for leaving my proper camera at home, it was an absolute winter wonderland, really beautiful...Canary Wharf obviously have invested in New York style snow clearing machines, as all the concourses were clear apart from enormous piles of snow dotted around the place...so they, at least, seem to have things completely under control (unlike the rest of the country)...why doesn't that surprise me? ;)

Oh and according to the Met Office, this isn't the end, just a short break before "phase 2"...more snow on the way!

What a hero!The powers that be are saying as this sort of weather only occurs once in a blue moon we can't afford the outlay to equip ourselves with snow ploughs etc.Hmmm..
