Another weather update
Yesterday's forecast for heavy snow was today down graded to wet snow, sleet and rain in coastal areas, with heavy snow only falling on the higher ground. At midday it duly arrived, first the wet snow, then the sleet, now just heavy bitterly cold rain. The house is full of dripping hats, scarves, gloves, boots and coats all of which will hopefully be dry by the morning.
Just two miles away it is a completely different story with roads becoming impassable. Further east of the county Haldon Hill is once again closed with many vehicles stranded.
I'm not sure which I prefer, the freezing temperatures and all that it brings, of the past few weeks or the biting wind and driving rain causing misery and mud.
In a few short months we will be complaining of the lack of rain and shortage of grass.
