Snow arrived early this year, transforming the landscape in the space of a couple of hours.
This brought traffic jams and trains frozen to the lines but eventually the commutors struggled home. When it snows like this, busy suburbia becomes quiet for a while. Cars are replaced by wellies and toboggans are towed along by eager children delighted to be missing school. The usually busy skies become quiet. We are on flight paths for planes and helicopters from Heathrow and Gatwick but for now we could be in the middle of the countryside.
