Sean's Stories

“Paranoid”, they called me. “Snowaphobic”, they mocked. My fears of Beast of the East, which I expressed yesterday, have turned out to be justified. Within an hour of publishing the blog, I ventured out to the household porch, only to find what can only be described as a ‘snow drift’, had found its way into the house! After recovering from the shock of discovering Mr Freeze had tried to enter my home, from under the front door, I quickly swept the pile of snow out of the front door – ensuring that I acted fast, due to an incredible blizzard outside. The snow did return back into the house later that evening, and Claire managed to get a photo. However, trust me, this is nothing compared to what I had to deal with!

I was off work again today. According to a tweet from one colleague, only 3 out of our 40 staff made it into the office this morning. It would appear that the snow had continued to fall heavily overnight, grinding Bath to a standstill. Claire checked our back garden and found that the snow was right up to our door and measured 30cm deep.

I assume that all the schools in Bath were closed today. Not because of the overnight snowfall, but because what looked like every child in the city was sledging in the fields behind our house. Compare this photo (taken on a sunny Sunday morning) to this (taken today).

My Dad came over on Saturday, to clear the path from our front door to the street and also ended up digging a neighbours car out of deep snow. I returned to work on Monday. I don't think I could h...

On this website, you’ll find me blogging (almost) daily about everyday life, living in Bath, working with computers, and the occasional bit of football stuff thrown in.

If you're expecting The Man Booker Prize, you've come to the wrong place. If you want to read a collection of sometimes eccentric, often disturbing and rarely amusing ramblings, gorge your eyes on this.
