Poetry In The Snow

It’s snowing outside. I’m getting just a little concerned about tomorrow’s readings at St Cuthbert’s Church hall (5 Lothian Road, just behind St John’s Church on the corner with Princes Street) as part of the 'Poetry at the Great Grog' reading series (different venue this month, but still an 8pm start). I just hope people persevere and make it through the snow.

I’ve had a good look at the venue. It’s excellent and should provide a brilliant atmosphere for the poetry. With readers like Tim Turnbull, Jane McKie, Andrew Shields and Alan Gay, it’s bound to be a memorable evening. But that snow… Will it put people off coming? I hope not.

Great line up. As I said before, I wish I could be there!

I'm beginning to feel that Dunbar is a little bit isolated from the rest of the UK. No snow here, not even particularly cold, just dreich this morning. It seems unreal listening to radio reports of 'weather events'.

The snow stopped about an hour after I wrote this post and, so far, hasn't returned.

I dropped into the Great Grog last night. Plenty of rugby fans around. Good thing we've moved the reading!

Really sorry not to be there, but there was just too much family stuff on this weekend and I have to do final preparations for a school session tomorrow. Hope it all goes swimmingly (and not because of meltwater).

It went really well. Great night!
