Just when I thought the coldest weather was behind us...

...it snowed.

We had about an inch and a half of snow in Reading, I reckon. A bit slippery underfoot, but not too much of a problem. My train to work was a few minutes late, but got me there on time. Walking the short distance from the station to the office, I noticed that the snow in Slough was a little deeper; a couple of inches, I think. Nothing that my armour-plated waterproof leather walking shoes (which I bought at the end of last year, and which are the best things I've had on my feet since ever) couldn't handle.

By late afternoon, the trains weren't running to any predictable timetable, when they were running at all. I was fortunate enough to get a lift back to Reading with a colleague; the motorway was fairly clear, with less traffic than is usual during the evening rush hour, presumably due to fewer people risking the journey in the morning. In Reading, a lot of the snow had melted, but the remaining slush had started to freeze, so it might be an icy, treacherous walk to the station tomorrow morning. I hope the trains are running...
