The "Beast from the East" has arrived but at the moment it is only rehearsing - we have had numerous snow flurries all throughout the day of a peculiar dry and almost hail-ly looking snow, but nothing that has really stuck.
That will change tomorrow morning, although god only knows at what time. Will it be before I ride to work, during, or after? How horrendous will the roads be? Will my hands turn purple and drop off?
Who knows. Chances are if it is really bad I will walk.
I saw my first lesser celandine in flower today as I walked around Beacon Hill, having decided to see what was in the nature reserve today. Not a lot, to be fair, but a big buzzard flapped by the sacred tree, and the world had a haunted look about it, as though it knew what was coming.
