‘Glasgow and the Beast from The East’

The Snow came down hard on 28th February 2018, bringing Glasgow to a standstill as the ‘Beast From The East’ set in and swept across the country. By the morning of 1st March a further night of heavy snow had brought a fresh layer of the white stuff and people battled the elements to maintain any sense of normal day to day life in the city. I got up early on the 1st of March, and realising it was going to be a different kind of day, decided to take a morning walk across the city. At first light the city felt quite surreal, no traffic, quiet, an unordinary day; yet the buildings and city stood still and peacefully buried beneath the snow.
