Another Snowy Day In London

January 13, 2010

Snow came to London yet again today. Traffic was a nightmare, overground rail services were reduced, schools closed and airports struggled. Not enough grit/salt meant roads and pavements in small side streets became ice rinks. If the people of London weren’t sick of the white stuff before, they are now.

I looked out of the window of Pie Palace this morning to see something marvellous. There were two men wearing big coats wielding big brooms clearing the snow from the pavements as the flakes continued to fall.

Look at that. I don’t know if they were from the Housing Association or the council and I’m sure they weren’t paid extra for it, but I am very grateful because I know they would’ve had to work a fair few streets in the area. This is the kind of thing I’d expect in Westminster or Kensington and Chelsea, but there it was, here in Tower Hamlets! Thanks, guys.
