When I decided to retire from the delivery work, one of the factors which had influenced me, to some extent, was the prospect of a severe winter by the usual standards for the south east of England. It snowed in November for the first time for over seventy years, for example, and more had been forecast.
Anyway, the first lot arrived overnight.
This was the view from our back door, this morning........
.......and the one from the kitchen window.
I don't think we'll be going out, today.
Evidently, practically the whole of The United Kingdom has ground to a halt - which is rather pathetic when one realises that what we've experienced would be considered little more than a light dusting of snow in parts of Europe - the Scandinavian countries, in particular.
One more view - from the lounge window, this time.
Snow and a palm tree!!
