Winter Walking 02: First Snow


created on my iPhone 5 January 2010

Yesterday lunchtime, the snow began to fall and by evening, the Police were closing the road that runs up the hill behind our house. As we took our walk, we passed cars, abandoned along the roadside, their drivers making frantic mobile phone calls home and asking us for directions. Up on the dark hill, the snow-muffled silence was animated by the sound of children's laughter as they sledded down on whatever makeshift craft was had been at hand: an old tyre, a tea tray or black plastic bin liners.
