We have snow!

Its almost unheard of here. St Mawes is sub tropical! There's not much of it in truth though they have closed the school. Got me thinking of where I lived in North Wales. Our first winter there it snowed in October and was still falling in May. Some times it was deep, sometimes just slippery but the world did not stop. We learned to work round it. The school sent a jeep for my daughter which did not please her much. David 1 always got to work even though he had to be dug out quite frequently. Once we had dug out his car only to have it covered again by the snow plough! The main roads were gritted but the lanes were not. In three snowy winters it never stopped me from either working or driving. But then us northerners are made of stern stuff!
