I don't know why and have to admit it is somewhat delayed in these credit crunched times. I've found some great pics of a snowfall we had back in '06. OK, not exactly up to date but great photos all the same and yeah, Christmassy.
There was a level 30 centimetres that day. That's a foot in old money and a real snow event, particularly in this neck of the woods.
What great fun it was walking around in the middle of a snowstorm, something I've not done since I was very young. I'd forgotten how different sound becomes after a heavy fall. It was oh so quiet, strange for a Saturday.
