10:08 This time last year the streets around my home were covered with a mysterious substance that prevented access and egress. This substance remained unidentified in our locale until – thankfully – merely a few days later a national newspaper known as The Guardian set up a live-blog about the mysterious thing that was drifting across the nation. My early fears that The Guardian would run its “what is this white powder affecting the nation?” live-blog in an ironic feature piece on celebrities by Marina Hyde in the pre-Leveson Inquiry G2 were alleviated when with due seriousness they called in some chap from the north of England and promoted the live-blog heavily on its front page. Thanks to the sterling reporting efforts from this man in the north of England, who regaled us with tales of Guardian reporters struggling manfully in all parts of the country, while offering regular guidance on transport problems affecting Guardian reporters around the country, I learned that this mysterious substance apparently should be known as “snow” and that literally two or three milimetres of this “snow” had adversely affected Guardian journalists in the London area and stopped any form of transport moving. Of course by that point we had this
And we were rather better placed than folk further north. But never mind.
Anyway, in order to get in quickly before The Guardian runs into overdrive because Alan Rusbridger slips on some ice on a pavement near his home (forcing the setting up of an ice live-blog, and various articles about the weather in the months at the end of the year becoming cold for no discernible reason) I have decided to set up my is there snow outside live-blog early this year.
So, as of now is there snow outside? No. There isn’t. There’s none. But I promise I will regularly update this for my regular reader’s information.
