It is April 6th and I wish you all a very happy new year. Tax year, that is. The United Kingdom is still stuck with a medieval calendar that used to finish on March 25, but was adjusted by 11 days when the Gregorian calendar was adopted in 1752. Anyway, it seems a more appropriate time of year to celebrate a new year. The days are lightening and the cold of winter is behind us. Or is it? This was the scene that greeted us this morning.
Still, it is a Sunday so no need to go to work and endure the usual litany of extensive delays caused by snow falling down the back of the signalman's neck, or whatever they come up with these days
