Bishopthorpe Road in the Snow

This is the view looking up Bishopthorpe Road, from my morning bus stop. Continue up the road this way, and you go past Terry's and to the village of Bishopthorpe ("Good Morning Archbishop Sentamu").

This is the view looking down Bishopthorpe Road from my bus stop. Continue this way, and you'd go past the Southbank shops (Pig and Pastry, Millie's, hooray!) and into town over Skeldergate Bridge.

A bit of a blizzard was blowing while both these photos were taken yesterday morning, and the bus was half an hour late, booo! Neither of my kids' schools closed, to their dismay as they would have far preferred a day building snowmen and poly bagging. (Ruby Senior: "Well why should schools close because of snow? They never did when I was a child. Not even in 1947!")

Little J did manage to get a diminutive snowman built while we were waiting for the bus, however.


Please note: Normal service on Ruby's blog has been interrupted due to adverse weather conditions, and her subsequent urge to blog snowy snuff. Reporting on events at York Residents' Festival will resume at the earliest opportunity, weather permitting. Thank you for your patience.

Brrrr! Just looking at the photos makes me feel cold! I went out taking photos today and enjoyed a walk though wintry woodland!

Well I stayed in yesterday but will have to get some bread and meat and fruit and veg in today. It isn't the snow that worries me but the ice underfoot so I might splurge on a taxi and hang the cost.

Ciao Ruby, all snow gone now here. Cold but a splendid sunshine! I think your Little J and my Little V shall meet some time. Same age and same love for snowmen! Actually yesterday she managed to put together a snow rabbit! Take care. A.

Great photos Ruby and well done Little J, shows initiative! And - I'm with Ruby Senior, Acomb Council school never closed even in 1947 (and we only had open coal fires) but the sledging on Acomb Green was great.

I didn't know you were a Yorkie, Freda! Acomb is one of the areas I've looked at quite a bit while I've been house hunting!
