Snowy spring

Three days after the spring equinox and almost British Summer Time, yet we've had more snow. Twitter was full of grumbles about the disruption of travel plans and cancelled social activities, but the worst casualties were the young man who died last night after trying to walk home from the pub in the cold, and the farmers who can't get to hungry livestock that haven't been fed for days.

But it looks pretty.

Drat!













Fooled by morning sunshine and a local weather forecast that didn't predict rain, I hung a lot of washing out to dry. This was the view across the fields from the next village as I drove into town.

Spring sunshine, if not spring weather

It looked deceptively bright and spring-like today, with bright sunshine and lots of cumulus humilis and fractus about.

Sunshine and snow showers



Some big cumulonimbus clouds passed overhead, shedding snow, sleet and hail-like lumps. Changeable afternoon. One minute bright sunshine, the next deep gloom.



A friend said that the edge of this cloud at the bottom, the dark bit, looks like a man trying to kiss the telegraph pole.

No shopping today

I was going shopping but I changed my mind, even if I have run out of chocolate. This was the view from my window this afternoon.
