It was snowing hard when I went to bed last night, but there seems to be less snow lying now than at midnight - 2-3 inches I guess. The sky is very grey, so there may be more to come.


Ditto at the other end of Sussex.

-17! Now that reminds me why Scandinavia isn't on my 'possible places to move to' list.

Only frost here, clear on the top with ground like concrete(so Col says!!)
He has been over to Merthyr-2" on Dowlais, 4" on Storey Arms and not enough visibility to see what it is doing on the Beacons- looked like a long strip of snowy weather.

Nice pics Fee - I LOVE the middle one . That would make a lovely Midwinter card.

Still just a few flakes here. Nothing to write home about.

I am torn between wanting it to snow and not wanting it to snow so Chez and Arvo can get here safely.

It can snow after they've gone.

Just spoken to Judith and Helen. We are definitely not going to collect the trailer - don't fancy towing with the roads like this and H says it's very icy with her. And we are going to make a judgement later on whether to come up tomorrow.

It's very, very cold - and bright - here. Lovely. But possibly not travelling weather.

I am quite frustrated .

If you feel insecure about travelling then don't do it. We can go over to judith tonorrow and help with birds if necessary.

Pity though.

So frustrating, but probably safest. As I said on the phone, it is the last 4 miles to my house that are the problem. I don't like the idea of you having to stage your own nativity scene at The Goat in Llanfair!

Don't worry about that - the only urgent one is the turkey, and Dave-from-down-the-road is coming to dispatch it for me tomorrow morning. (And I can come over and help you with the ducks on Sunday).

Oh I don't know: they do very nice Welsh Black steaks in the Goat. And there's ususally good beer too. If C & A get there could you bring the birds and the plucker down? We could do the slaughtering in the car park.

*Stamps foot*
I am not trudging five miles in the snow in my wellies carrying a dead turkey on my back just so you can stage some sort of renaissance tableau in a pub carpark. Not even for a nice pint of Big Nev.
*Smoothes ruffled feathers*

It would get into the County Times, though. And I could probably get the Landrover over to you to pick you up.
