Every year, we sing Handel's "Messiah" around this time. Last year, it was cancelled because of the sudden snowfall, and the soloists couldn't make it up from the south (Manchester).
So- it's a week earlier this year.....Thursday night....and the forecast is the 1st snow of the season.....
Here we go again!!!

White stuff arrived in York this morning! Not much, but enough to slow down the traffic. I suppose the schools will be closing early. Nearly got taken out on the way to work by an idiot going round a corner too fast and coming right over to my side of the road, skidding wildly. Luckily, I was just able to stop. The skies are very grey, so maybe more on the way.
Drat it seems to be all around us up here...though not actually any in our town....but as I have to get a train very early on monday to Aberdeen where I fly to London from, I am getting a bittie nervous Not so worried about the London to Miami part of my journey...its just getting to London bit that is making me
Anyone here please from the Aberdeen area who can help with updates on the snow ?
The local news- Border/Tyne/Tees- showed some heavy falls down the east of the country, with schools being closed etc.....but not a flake over here on the west coast. But it was cold, singing in a vast church tonight....got home and had to have a hot shower just to survive! We were filmed by the above local news....they'll probably cut it down to 1 min 15secs......
Hope your journey goes well, Host E.
Yes we have snow here which is a might unusual at this time of the year as we are surrounded by hills it ususally misses us but by the look of it it is here to stay for how long its just wait and see.
I was skating (in the car) on loose snow and ice today in the midlands!
