Thursday… Winter bites!

I suppose we are no worse off (and probably better) than most of the country, but this was the scene that greeted us this morning. (and more pictures in the Gallery). It seems to have been a long time since the last entry, longer than I normally leave it, but quite a lot going on. […]
