Like much of the country, we woke to a mostly black and white world.
A working day still, alas. The double-edged sword of working in technology means that while there is electricity and an internet connection, there is no such thing as a “snow day”. It did give me the chance to swap meeting rooms and a buzzing office for my quiet desk at home though, after a week that has been particularly demanding of my time and energy.
It also gave opportunity to take a break; for a walk out into this magical world, down the hill and around the village, while the snow continued to blow relentlessly across the landscape, as local children built igloos and slid down the hills.
I am still enchanted by the first days of snowfall, this pristine white world that yet remains unsullied as the snow continues to blow across the land. Tomorrow, with no other demands on our time, I look forward to exploring it further…
