Who's that big one at the back?

Mon 2 Feb

The folks in Jan's street get to know each other, and some of the children get to build a snowman for the first time in their lives. I wonder how long it will stay up? See also the view from Crouch End.

Meanwhile, not very far away

. . . across North London, the snow had also fallen in Sarah's back garden. They say this is SE England's heaviest snowfall in 18 years. See the previous post for Andrei Arshavin (?) Walking in a Winter Wonderland, the next one for how 25 went mad in the snow in Brighton, and the one after that for some snow in Southern Spain. All today (well, yesterday, by the time I get this posted).

Arshavin arrives to sign contract

"Arsenal have gone to great lengths to make me feel at home", he said (in Russian, of course). "This is just like St Petersburg".

Stop Press Tue 3 Feb:
What he actually said, a day later, was: "I see weather like, in St Petersburg. I feel like, in my country." In English. Does he read my blog?
