Back to London Trip 2009: Part 6
It snowed last night so the streets were covered with snow the next morning. Today’s the day I journey to Birmingham on a bus.
Except that there are tons of it on the street now. They don’t melt very fast. And snow on cars are not easily removed because they usually form a very hard layer. So it’s more like scraping ice off than blowing snow off cars.
Since I was heading up north, it was going to get colder with higher possibility of snow. And heavy snow may cause the motorways to be jammed and stuck. There have been cases where people were stuck in their cars for hours and
froze to death suffered hypothermia.
Forgot to take a photo of the bus, but it was National Express and it runs straight from Golders Green to Birmingham Central. Luckily the snow did not cause any jams on the motorway and I reached there on time. Then I took a cab to Joanne’s apartment somewhere in Birmingham. The most vivid memory of her apartment is the cold. For some reason she never use the heaters and she likes to open her windows when it’s snowing outside.
Birmingham was covered with snow! It snowed so much that it was possible to make a snowman. I did try and if Joanne can still find that video I will post it up.
I slept during the afternoon because I was too tired after the bus ride. Had Joanne’s homecooked food for lunch and dinner. I’ll be fat if I stay there for too long! We went and watched
Daybreakers Sherlock Holmes at the local cinema at night. Love the free seating here!
