Good News and Snow

 Good news – I am a grandfather again. A fine healthy boy, born early this morning. This brings the tally to five – four boys (two of them in New Zealand) and one girl.
And, as if to mark the occasion, it snowed this morning – great fat flakes to begin with, promising well, but, alas, within an hour or two it was mostly slush. Good to have had some snow though – I don't think we had any the last three winters. Just briefly it looked almost like the scene above, painted by a local artist, the excellent John Stillman. That is All Saints, Carshalton, viewed aslant across the East pond.
