Initially, the attempt was to head towards work, and should my quest fail, then I could go home in the knowledge that I tried and that I had some fun (and took some photos) out in the snow!
The problem was that I quite quickly made it to somewhere between work and home and was going nowhere, fast. This is what led to the struggle.
However, it was a nice highlight to come across this snowman outside Tottenham Court Road Station:
Snowmen with political agendas always seem so much better than ordinary snowmen!
Other highlights where seeing Tottenham Court Road itself virtually deserted at 9.30 on a Monday morning, and the opportunity to take some rather cool artistic photos (that I am known to take every now and then).:

Note: I would have posted these sooner but unfortunately my new 1GB memory card for my camera does not work within my card reader. Sorry!
