Snowy Travel

Peter —  January 10, 2010

We’ve still got lots of snow around (by UK standards) although the main roads are ok.  Last night I was scheduled to speak in west London, about 45 minutes by car.  The forecast was bad for last night and it can be a challenge to get up the hill to Caterham, so I decided to travel by train instead.  I left the car at the station and knew I might have to leave it there and walk home.  Thankfully it wasn’t a problem, and although the fifteen minute wait at Clapham Junction felt like standing in frozen wind tunnel (I would imagine), I was able to get home without problem.  So despite the plan B travel plans, it was a good evening, not least to spend time with a friend who has invited me to be a part of teaching a preacher’s club/course that he is launching, and then to enjoy the encouragement of conversation with some at the meeting.  This evening I have stepped in for a speaker who had to cancel because of the weather at a church in Dorking.  I’m looking forward to that and then a few days to get as much done as possible before I head over to Germany on Friday for the OM conference.  Hope you have a great week!
