I am very envious of your snow!

Also slightly bemused that the museum can spell 'inclement' but not 'Sorry'!

I've been trying to work that one out myself, but to no avail.

*seethes with snow-jealousy*

I hope the snow is still lying in the Oxford area at the weekend, but it seems unlikely.

It would be good to have a snowy banquet, though. I hope that there is still some around too, though not so much as would stop people and food being transported of course.

Woodstock is lovely as usual, but snow gives it an additional Christmasy feel. We've been taking lots of photos in Oxford today, I'll post a link when I've uploaded them.

I look forward to seeing your pictures. I would like to have been out taking pictures at 10am before the roads were at all cleared, but I had pressing issues to deal with, such as attempting to get into Oxford. Apparently it was taking two and a half hours to get into Oxford from Kidlington this morning; I think it was easier getting in from Woodstock as long as you could get out of the Glyme valley.

Very picturesque, certainly compared to the weedy grey stuff dying on the roads round here. I'd like it to last to the weekend too, but I also hope we can get too and from your base.

I avoided taking pictures of the grey stuff (except that it wasn't weedy) as far as I could. The forecast is for temperatures to drop tonight and the grey stuff to become ice. Not good.

I'll have to take your word for it - KPMG's web filtering software is blocking the site you've posted the photos to.

I always used to think that Oxford was cold. I distinctly remember the Cherwell freezing over once. I went out and fed the ducks next to Magdalen kitchen. Very funny watching them sliding all over the ice.

Can't remember Oxford being so cold the Cherwell froze over. It certainly wasn't cold enought for the Glyme to freeze - I've got four seconds of babbling brook which I might upload sometime.

To be fair, it wasn't the whole river when it's at its full width. When it goes past Magadlen, the Cherwell splits into two or three streams, and it was one of these smaller, slower flowing streams that froze over. From Magdalen Bridge, heading north, take the left hand fork past the boathouse - that one. I think this whole area is shown on some maps as 'Mesopotamia', although I never heard anyone at Magdalen using that name.

I really like those pictures! You have a good eye as a photographer.

Thank you - I'm glad you think so. The Woodstock snow pictures came out better than my banquet photos, of which a small selection soon.
