When it snows, the first thing most people seem to do is rush out to the shops in a mad panic. Buying as much milk and bread that they can possibly cram into their cupboards. Shopping is the last thing on my mind at the best of times, so I wasn't about to join the masses on this occasion.
No matter how prepared you are, you can never plan on the weather. I had been checking the forecasts all week and it wasn't looking good. My only hope was that they were wrong, as they so ofter are. I woke up on Monday morning to the sound of pitter patter on the window and it wasn't the birds tap dancing.
