For this weeks Gallery, Tara over at Sticky Fingers has chosen the theme "white". How appropriate!! It certainly has been white in this part of the country over the last 24 hours, with over 8 inches of snow falling in 6 hours yesterday.
The whole of Scotland just seemed to grind to a halt. My husband didn't make it into work, abandoning the car just outside of our estate. I was supposed to be night shift, and tried to get into work, but no buses, no taxi's, absolutely nothing was running. Being a nurse, I felt to guilty that I couldn't get into work. Three of my colleagues couldn't get home, so they pulled a double shift, and another colleague walked into work. The whole country had just stopped.
Hubby and I took a walk up to the main road to see if any buses were running so I could get into work. Outside was very eerie. Streets that are usually so busy, and noisy, were serenely quiet. Here was the scene on our main road:
So I know the gallery is supposed to be about taking one picture that captures the essence of the theme, but I'm SO indecisive and couldn't pick just one (I'm a Libran after all!). I'm also a sucker for snow covered trees:
This last one is my favourite!!
