On Friday (18th January 2013) Cardiff woke up to a blanket of white. This was the first snow of the winter, and as usual in Wales, with a light dusting of snow chaos ensued. Even the M4 motorway was closed for several hours because of an accident. It’s very different from my 6 years in Wisconsin. I moved to Wisconsin in the summer of 1995. I remember waking up in November 1995 at about 2am on a Sunday morning, woken by the sound of snow ploughs out clearing the roads. By the time I got up on that Sunday morning, despite over 30cm of snow having fallen, all the roads were clear. Wales, on the other hand, shuts down if we have more than 2cm!
Here are some of the photographs I took of the snow on Friday, mainly in Bute Park.
What is the heaviest snow fall you’ve experienced?
