It stopped raining before Christmas, just in time to freeze and snow. This afternoon we had a blizzard which blocked all the main roads in a matter of minutes and even the normally mild coastal areas were wiped out for a time. (The single track side roads inland have been impassable for weeks). In LlanfairTH we had up to 9 inches of snowfall in about 3 hours, so, unsurprisingly, our meeting tomorrow is CANCELLED. If I can get out of the house in the morning I will post some photos. In the meantime, here is a nice cheery and unsnowy picture of a touch of hoarfrost on ivy.
