The weather forecasters did warn us that central southern England might see some heavy snow today… and it came. When I woke this morning we’d had a light dusting overnight, but at 9am it started to snow heavily. It still is.
I went out at lunchtime and took a few shots. Here’s Eynsham church looking very Christmassy:
And the Best Shop in the World, Evenlode DIY, was, as you’d expect, open for business as usual:
As was our wonderful Post Office:
Even the wheelie bins looked nice:
People were out and about.
The Co-Op was doing a roaring trade from people panic-buying. This little dogger waited outside the shop while his owner bought provisions. I thought it was an old rag or bit of rubbish covered in snow until he moved and made a little whimper.
The old terrace of cottages on Newland Street looked beautiful:
Even our very plain little house looked nice.
Red seems even redder against a snowy backdrop.
And finally, a view of The Square.
Six hours after the first flakes fell this morning, there is now nine inches of snow on the ground.
This blog is dedicated to my lovely friends and readers who have escaped the European winter and are enjoying the summer in the sunny southern hemisphere: especially Louis and Marcia in Santiago, and Martin and Natty in Sydney.
