Didn't think we were going to get that much snow as by 4 pm there were only small flurries. Obviously after we closed the curtains it came at quite a pace. DB has just been out to measure the depth and it is 5 inches! The gritters don't do most of the roads in our village so we tend not to venture out unless we have too.
We are expecting light snow showers on and off all day with the possibility of up to another 2 inches. Then like most of the country, very, very cold temperatures overnight. If you haven't yet turned off the water to your outside taps (or protected them), do so now.
DS. sent us this fantastic picture of little Miss M (with sister S. in the background) out on their walk yesterday. This is the first time M. has seen snow, looks like she enjoyed it. Hope you don't mind me using it DS, it made us both laugh.
I have just started a batch of bread to last us the week, then I will make some more soup, probably the same as last time as I still have some bacon to use up.
