“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).

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
