Is it an early winter?

Even though I was doubting whether the summer was coming along, there’s
absolutely no doubt in my mind that winter has most definately arrived.

This morning for the first time (admittedly I’ve not had it for that long) I
had to scrape ice off my car and apparently it snowed a little bit last night.
It’s been giving me ice warnings for a couple of weeks now (it beeps at me
when the temperature gets below 3°C outside) but there hasn’t actually been
much ice on the roads or anything. I suppose I should start keeping an eye
out.

In Guildford it’s fairly easy to predict when it’s going to snow heavily (last
night doesn’t count): usually never before January and usually never after the
beginning of April. By heavily I mean like this and
this.

A couple of people have said that it’s early, being October and all, but it is
the end of October remember. I think winter is right on time this year.

Ok, so I lied

There wasn’t a post later. Oh well. I got too involved in watching the Dog
Whisperer
and then 2 Fast 2
Furious
. Both very good if you need
something to have on the TV that you don’t really want to pay attention to.

Work is very busy at the moment. We’re redoing our main website and it’s just
busy busy busy. Having said that, I’ve still got some days holiday remaining,
so I need to start working out what I’m going to do with them. I can’t carry
them over to the new year, so once I’ve got this project finished I might
start working 4 day weeks. I plan to work between Xmas and New Year as it’s
generally quiet (it was last year) client-wise so I can get a load of internal
stuff done.

What  else is happening? The flat is looking good now. More and more floor
space is starting to appear. We still haven’t had a housewarming of any sort,
but it’s not a huge flat so I don’t know how many people would fit
comfortably. Probably won’t end up having one.

Fetish night at the Union is happening on Friday. Will probably be working it
as usual. Always a good night to work :) – it’s too busy to enjoy as a punter
but working as behind the bar is always a good way of passing the night with
friends.
