Sorry for the lack of posts lately...in case there were any doubts, we are alive. Over the past few weeks, we have survived exams (Jared), a stomach bug (Leah), and the great British snow storm of 2010.
My mother arrived on December 17th and was originally supposed to leave today. Unless you have been in a cave for the last few days, you have probably heard that England has gotten a little bit of snow lately. So much, in fact, that it has wreaked havoc on all modes of transportation throughout the country. As a result, my mother's flight was canceled and she will not be able to fly back to Houston until December 26th. A four-day delay! I guess we will not be having Christmas by ourselves after all!
|It was not snowing when mom's flight arrived, but this is what the ground looked like by the time we exited the London Tube|
|Our first visitor in Oxford|
|Outside of our flat on Saturday|
|Central Oxford on Saturday night|
|The Christ Church quad covered in snow|
|Even the fountains in London's Trafalgar Square were frozen|
|Regardless of the weather, London is still beautiful at night|
