It is snowing like there is no tomorrow here in North Wales. I live in a small village and I have to travel to the nearest town in order to get a bus to another town to get to school. But, we found this morning that we are stuck in the village!
We attempted to get out of the village but the snow is coming down too fast and the roads are not gritted. When we turned around, the tracks from our car had been covered up.
So, I must say, this is a great excuse for me to do some extra violin practice! I literally DIE in school when I am sitting in history or French or any of my lessons and get a sudden urge to play the violin.
I think it is great that I get a free day to do something constructive. I may go out and play in the snow too later! But for now, I'm going to keep warm and play some violin. A great excuse to practice!
Totally agree and I know that feeling about beeing trapped in school ; )
Hi From Australia,
I was wondering if this very cold weather is having a affect on your violins tuning, I have problems with the very hot weather here, & keep bowls of water close to playing area & where i keep my violin, I am planning a trip to Ireland next year & wondered about the very cold weather ?
