So where did all the snow go?

It was snowing quite hard last night as I drove home. It wasn't snowing in Ruthin, but as several people in the class were doing tests and I didn't think anyone would want to start a brand new unit (spreadsheets) at 8.30pm immediately after doing the word processing test, I said that anyone who had finished their test could go and then sent the residue home at 8.45pm to give me a head start on the weather.

But despite the snow being quite blizzardy in places (to the extent that it became easier to peer through the whirling flakes into the gloom produced by dipped headlights rather than be dazzled by all the bright whirling whiteness generated by headlights on full beam) there was no snow on the road this morning. Plenty on the hills and small lanes, but the main road was clear.Collapse )

And now, having just popped my head out to see what the weather is like, I know where the snow has gone. It's falling now!! I spoke too soon. So I'm off back to the main college where I will have to decide whether to abandon the evening class and phone everyone to say it's cancelled, or whether to risk the roads still be passable by car after 9.00pm tonight.

The usual British compromise

I considered cancelling the Bala evening class, but in the end it came down to a typical British compromise, i.e. I went to the school and waited to see how many turned up and as there was enough to be worth doing a class (5), I did an Introduction to the web module and the students had a short session of searching for information on the web using Google. We finished at 8.30 instead of 9.

Off home now. Hope the road is better between here and home than it was between Ruthin and here.
