After hearing of great disruption due to snow in other parts of the country, we’ve got some today.  Weather warmed up as the snow arrived!  This is a rare thing in England, doubly so in the southwest, so we’re not equipped for it, even a tiny sprinkling like today.

Kiddies of all ages on improvised toboggans on Whitchurch Down.  Cars doing the same where the roads are untreated on a hill, only not intentionally.  I’ve just wimped out of making the journey into Plymouth for a christmas party, but that’s as much an excuse as a genuine inability to travel: I was already in two minds about going, and when I was invited to a meal out locally instead it became a no-brainer.
