We've got snow!!

Snow, snow and more snow when we woke up this morning. I was up with Midge at 4am and it was falling slowly on top of what we had last night. By the time 8am arrived this was the view from the upstairs window. It's a main road and a bus route so the roads are usually gritted well.

Lots of large flakes fell for a lot of the morning, its the most snow we have seen for 18 years according to the BBC news. I don't think my car will be going far for a while.

By 3pm this afternoon, the back garden was looking a real picture postcard scene.

I hope all the UK folks stayed safe, warm and cosy.

Julie,

You are right about the backyard garden looking like a postcard. It really is lovely to look at but quite another thing to have to go out in it.

Keep warm :)
Warm Hugs:)

Your back garden looks lovely in the snow! I haven't really got any photos of my garden from yesterday, but I wandered up across Victoria Park this morning, camera in hand taking a few pics. The first thing I said to my DS when I got home yesterday was, 'Get your coat and boots on - lets build a snowman!' Now that was one thing he didn't need nagging to do!
