This was taken while we waited for the bus to come and after Richard had taken it a Kenyan man asked us to take a photo of him in the snow. We then had a discussion about our joint lack of experience with the snow and the thrill of seeing it. He is supposed to be heading back to Kenya tonight.....I am guessing the weather there will be somewhat different!
After about 15 minutes a bus came along. It was not the right bus, but it was a bus! It would get us back up to the top of Muswell Hill at least. As we had no idea how long it would take for one of the buses that would get us all the way home to come we decided to jump on.....another good decision! The bus ground its way up to Muswell Hill and then we got out. This was what we found.
In the time it had taken us to shop the Hill had transformed into a winter wonderland. It looked so beautiful, but very little traffic was now getting through! So we decided to walk home from there....another good decision!
As we walked through the main shopping centre it became more obvious that the snow was having an impact. These photos were taken outside one of the lovely gift shops and cafes in Muswell Hill. The cafe is called the Crocodile Cafe .....check out the snow on the poor croc's head in the third photo!
Up to the next roundabout and here was the view.
As we walked down the hill towards home the view of the intrepid British postman amused me!
...and then there were the inevitable children building a snowman!
......and all the time the snow kept falling!
As we moved further down the road and came closer to home, we came upon this:
Luckily the bus had not hit the car but there was only millimetres in it. I think that neither the bus nor car are going anywhere for a while!
