Yes, here it is. The holidays are over – very cold, but clear and bright for most of the last few weeks – and as people return to work and to school, here comes the snow. Pretty spectacular it is too –
We were promised snow flurries overnight, and awoke this morning to a dull grey day; no sign of snow, just very wet.
At one point it seemed that it might just brighten, but the grey, cold wet continued. Then the snow, at first a little sleet, “won’t settle” but soon changing to the biggest snowflakes we’ve ever seen -you might be able to get an idea from the pictures.
The TV news from England this lunch time was about the coldest winter for a decade continuing; our next door neighbour says here is the coldest winter for over 40 years. Seasonal weather, even though it missed the holiday itself, perhaps boding well for seasonal weather throughout the year ??
Best wishes for the New Year to all our readers and guests.
