The front gate

Trees in the street

The back garden

I'm sure most of you are aware that we have had a lot of snow in the UK, it seems to have made headline news around the world. Well, we have had snow since Jan 1st, it started snowing just after midnight, and snowed every day up to Friday and never melted, but Friday it came down heavy. Our garden on these pics has about 8-10 inches. The city became gridlocked at rush hour, and it took everyone hours to get home. Dh was on the bus, and the 10-15 minute journey took over one hour. Yesterday it started to rain, and it didn't stop, not heavy rain, but steady rain, and this has nearly washed all the snow away, but we are supposed to get more snow. We are now sweltering in the 2C temperature, is it nearly summer?

Tonight, I have finally got the camera cable back off dd, but did she put it back by the pc where I keep it - no, away in the camera box on top of a cupboard! - even though I was waiting for it! I'm sure if you have teenagers you know what it's like, you have to wait, and wait, and be patient, and wait, and then it's usually your fault - not theirs.

I made great progress on JN Sunday, so now need to get a pic of that for you.
