Yesterday at about 4 o'clock in the afternoon it began to snow. At first it was a whirlwind of huge flakes which disappeared as soon as they reached the ground as it had already been raining. (The weather was probably the reason why so few parents came into our school software fair.) Driving back to the shop, the snow was beginning to stick. In fact, on the fields, it was forming quite a thick layer. By half past five, my car was covered by about 3 inches of the stuff.
This morning, it took me about ten minutes to scrape inches of frozen snow off my windscreen, and that was with the aid of 2 different brands of de-icer!
Now I know some people love the snow, and I must admit, looking across to the hills from here, it is like a Christmas card, but snow in November? It's as bad as the shops putting up their Christmas decorations in October! I'm STILL waiting for summer!!
