The last few days have been dominated by a dramatic start to winter. We have had the most snow I can remember. Today the roads were pretty much impassable except in a 4x4 and the local schools closed following a heavy snowfall overnight on top of the 4 or 5 inches we already had. There was even a snow and lightening storm at dawn which was quite eerie. Some folk were determined to get out in their cars and spent ages digging cars out of drifts. The kids have enjoyed more sledging today and are hoping for a repeat performance tomorrow. I am trying hard to fit in some crafting for the Hexham Christmas market in less than 2 weeks in between drying out snowy clothes and foot wear. This week I'm supposed to be making wreaths. Hopefully I'll get cracking on these soon.
