Plans are scuppered for the day....we have about 6'' and double where it's drifted.
It looks like a pretty Christmas card.

I was just talking to a lady in Scotland on the phone (sky is on the blink) she said it was sunny there too.
Maybe it's just this part of the country. We cant complain though, this is the first proper snow we have had all winter.

Beautiful here, actually got some gardening done, although the last 2 nights have been horrendous for wind and rain.


Mind you, they have been talking about a white Easter!

Suffolk Syl, we tend to do ok weather wise.  Brother is in Newcastle, they tend to get a lot more bad weather than we do.

Coastal California doesn't get snow because the Japanese Current dips eastward enough to keep it warm. East of the Central Valley, in the Sierra Madre Mountains, there are record falls.

Tomorrow we are expecting our strongest storm of the season. As the system moves east, it will develop into a blizzard.

We've been enjoying temperatures around 23 in the DFW area lately. Everything's greening up and flowering, and yesterday I saw my first lizard of the year.

Normally I would say shurrup, but today has been so lovely I won't.  However, the temperature has dropped to freezing now (8pm) athough it's beautifully clear night we are due sleet in the morning.

We've been in the mid-high 80s. Been dunking my feet in the pool. DAMN rattlers are already out and about. Nasty winds have started. We're under a fire watch. But should be dropping 25 degrees by Tuesday with small chance of rain.

We are Syl. One of the reasons why we stayed instead of going back to the UK.

Believe it or not I do miss the UK weather sometimes.

Hope you warm up x

Well spring is on the way, so fingers crossed we will have some nice weather soon. sunny
I know what you mean about missing the cold weather though....we spent Christmas abroad in the sun a couple of years ago, and I really did miss the cold.
I soon changed my mind when we came home though.
