More snow!

We had almost lost all the snow that fell over the previous couple of weeks. But last night there was a fresh snowfall and we awoke to a couple of inches of the white stuff.

It does make for a nice picture - the photo above is the view from our front door this morning - but I had hoped we had seen the last of it and that we might return to the mild temperatures we normally get. (I can remember winters when we hardly ever had a frost.)

The streets where we live have not been gritted and as you can see from the picture we are on a hill. Fortunately we don't have to go anywhere except for into the town now and again for supplies which we can do on foot. Otherwise I think I would be starting to regret exchanging the Suzuki 4x4 that we had for our present small lightweight two wheel drive Hyundai which is not really designed for such conditions.
