We've had 'The Big Freeze,' so we now come to 'The Big Thaw.' There certainly seems to be less snow this morning. The main roads going towards the Academy are virtually ice and snow-free this morning. We had to go to Bletchley and collect Steve, who is a colleague of Carol's at the Academy, as he's had problems with his car and needed a lift. The road leading into the Academy was a good deal clearer than in past days, although the carpark remains fairly snowed up.
