Snow. What could be more apt as Christmas approaches?
And yet it is somewhat disconcerting. Perhaps because we had such a mild autumn, so such a cold snap is a shock.
But I think it is disconcerting more because snow at this time of year is rare. I’ve not experienced a White Christmas in my lifetime; that as much as the visual language of Christmas has snow at its centre, my memories of Christmas don’t.
However, it provides a good excuse for staying indoors, which is no bad thing at this time of year.
