Eheu fugaces..

or, "Well, that didn't last long, did it?"

This morning, so many cars, vans and other vehicles were sporting a toupee or mohican of snow, sometimes as much as five or six inches high. My bus even had a fetching fringe almost to the bottom of the front window on the top deck.

This evening, most vehicles are back to their customary baldness, the snowmen are wilting and on the pavements the snow is turning to the sludgy slush that is usually we get in London.

Mind you, if the weather turns out as forecast, there should be many moments of involuntary comedy as we all slip and slide our way to work (or the A&E department) over the next few days.
