Well, it wasn’t so rare when I was a kid, but we haven’t seen snow like this round these ‘ere parts since 2003 that I can remember, when people ended up stranded in cars on the A417 and had to abandon them and walk home.
It looks beautiful though – pristine and virginal. Even our garden looks clean and tidy 😉
So, the Met didn’t really predict that there would be snow fall last night in this area, and at about 2pm yesterday the previous couple of days snowfall began to melt, and the residents of our little hill top village were jubilant at the prospect of a risk free day today. But last night we got another 10cm or so, with the previous gritting having no effect whatever. It was bad enough on Monday and Tuesday, but there is no way we are going to get out, or into the village.
We had a snow plough coming round early this morning, but that only served to compact the snow into slippery veneer or to reveal the frozen icy layer below. It’s another snow day for all the kids in the village.
Here’s a few snaps (some of them credited to my 10 year old daughter). More to come – we are off for an expedition into the woods and fields at lunchtime (I am working from home again).
