When I was in London, two years ago, something unusual happened.
The city shut down. People retreated to their warm, cozy living rooms. Public transportation stopped operating. Shops closed for a few days. Snow was slowly taking over London, paralyzing its core. And so I did just what any Canadian would do.
I took a walk in Hyde Park.
Snow in London is not a great scenario for regular life. The city is not equipped for dealing with snow falls, no matter how big or small. So it shuts down completely (causing major economic disasters). Some people chose to catch up on their sleep. Others decided to embrace their inner child and build snowmen in the park. Me, I couldn’t help myself, as I went through the familiar routine of putting on my boots, my scarf, my mittens, my hat and my duvet coat. I smiled.
Have you ever experienced snow in London? How did you react?
