Friday 10 February 2012: King's Cross St Pancras
I had to travel down to London today for another all-day (most of it typing real-time notes) meeting, so I was not best pleased to see more snow last night. As I went to bed, we'd already got an inch covering the ground and plants and it was still snowing quite heavily. Fortunately it must have stopped soon after, as it was about the same depth when I woke up at 6. I took a few snaps of the garden but it was bitterly cold outside and I quickly shut the patio door again.
The snow had frozen solid, so the taxi struggled to get off the estate, wheel-spinning even with gentle acceleration. The main roads were ok as they'd been gritted though but it was rather nippy waiting on the platform at Peterborough station. The countryside looked beautiful all dressed up in its winter finest, but the train windows were filthy - FILTHY! - and I couldn't get a decent picture.
Not enough time during lunch to get a photo and I ended up sharing a cab with my client after the meeting, so my plan to take a photo outside the hotel as I walked back to the underground was foiled. In the end I had a bit of time to kill outside King's Cross while I waited for the train with a seat reserved just for me, so I took some snaps outside and inside King's Cross. Ant picked this one of the canopy at the front of King's Cross Station and the St Pancras Clocktower. There's a bit more information about the clocktower here if anyone's interested...and a couple of my earlier blips of the same complex (it's such a gift for a blipper needing a photo after a long day in London!) are here and here.
