it's snow >> 2 years ago

two years ago this weekend we had an unusual event for this part of the country (cornwall) in that snow pretty much stopped everything. I was at work but got snowed in as the weather didn't come in until about 8.30am so others were stuck on their way to work.
it was unusual as being the warmest part of mainland uk, the mild air normally stops the snow from staying very long.
this photo is taken from my desk looking towards the sea, and even got some other pictures published by the bbc on their web site.

it was also the day that the only two snow ploughs the area of cornwall I live in skidded into each other, but that is another story.

what a gorgeous pic, but I can't stop laughing at the thought of the only two plows skidding into each other, yikes.

thanks jafabrit, it took ages to get the road clear mainly moving the snow ploughs, the snow never lasts long here as the warming sea breeze sea is so near.

We spent a few family holidays driving around and staying in Cornwall when I was young. Good memories.
