Snowy Saturday

Normally we get our groceries delivered, but the snow meant that we couldn't get a slot this week. Which is why we ended up in Tesco's this afternoon. And oh, the humanity! The slippery icy walkway of death leading into the shop, the hundreds of damp customers thronging the aisles in a frenzy of panic buying, the endless angry queues at the checkout - bad times! And Bobby playing what he calls trolley ballet (where you and your trolley partner spin and pirouette along the aisles) lent a surreal edge to the whole event. By the time the four of us emerged from the store it was snowing hard again, so driving home was a bit hairy at times. And when we finally got home, some dastardly individual had parked in our spot. On the plus side, our outrage gave us a warm glow.
My tranquil early morning run seemed a world away...

I wonder how much longer this snow will persist?

You must video the trolley ballet.
