Snow joke...

The Abbey looks stunning in the snow, but the going is treacherous on the slopes and paths. Driving is a nightmare of icy roads and snow hiding the kerbs. Its picture postcard stuff and magnificent, but it also makes one think of just how much our modern lives try to avoid acknowledging that nature is still King when it comes to managing any of it. Tewkesbury has about twelve inches of snow, which isn't that much of a problem - unless you are compelled to go out. And what amazes me is just how many elderly folk feel a strange compulsion to go out and buy non-essential items! In the car, of course.
