SNOW BLANKETS ENGLAND
Here in the Cotswolds, it's been a fairly continuous dose of the white stuff since early Friday - and all day today Sunday. Main roads have been kept open though, so traffic has been light but reasonably free-flowing, 'drive with care' being the operative phrase for safe travel.
Minor roads in Chipping Norton have seen a mini-snowplough trundling up and down - a most impressive sight, after personal experience of village life, where such things were unheard of!
Whatever difficulties it creates, snow is of course, a magical substance that transforms the mundane into a thing of beauty, and heavy frosts have given many plants, especially their leaves, a Kirlian-like fringe of glittering white.
