London, in the Snow


Naomi Bakken writes, This year my family and I went to England for Christmas.

This year my family and I went to England for Christmas. After we arrived and got our bags we took the bus to my grandma’s house. My first impression was that England was miserable or at least the weather was. It was rainy and grey with no sunlight at all. It stayed like that for about a week. The night it started snowing nobody really noticed, but when I woke up in the morning there was about 2 inches of snow. That day most of the shops were closed and the buses were shut down. The next day it snowed again, a lot more people were outside playing, taking walks, talking, laughing and some small children just discovering what snow really was and how wonderful it was. That night we went to a caroling event, every body was happy by the end of the day the snow was about 6 inches. The day after that the instead of it just snowing it had turned into a blizzard, at the end of the day it stopped snowing but the snow was about a foot and a half of snow, which in Colorado is not very much, but the most snow they normally get if they get any is about a centimeter. The next day it didn’t snow at all but there was a surprise in the newspaper, the it had been the biggest snowstorm in over 80 years.
