It's real snow and it's STILL snowing !

From my window this morning it didn't look too bad. What I forgot is that the seawind is blowing right up our street, so most of it got blown away...

Away.. or into our porch!



Gritting lorries are out on the main arteries. But some much is lying there allready with an icy layer underneath it doesn't seem to make much difference...



it makes playing the lottery even more of a challenge than usual!



Snow and icy roads wherever you go..



Top marks for Royal Mail trying to deliver mail... on foot... and in SHORTS!!!



These festive berries hidden under a blanket of snow..



Rafael having een absolute ball! Diving into the deepest snowdrifts he could find and ending up not only with a beard, but also with snow clumped on his feet so we had to turn back and thaw him out...



We had a 4 mile hike to the station to check out the trains (or rather lack of them..) so the park will have to wait.

On the promenade a nasty sharp snowstorm blowing in from the sea. Visibility at sea completely obliterated... I could not even see 100 yds off shore.. less probably.



We'll dry out a little before we go and see how pretty the park is!

Still snowing and now coming up for (guess..) 3 or 4 inches.

They deliver mail in SHORTS? In December? When it's snowing??? amazing ... Your pictures are great, thanks for sharing the winter impression. Your dog looks like he's happy with the snow - and I would love to do a rubbing from that mat in your first picture ;-)))
