Trailblazer in the snow at 7.00 this morning
I said I'd give you an update, and here it is - we've got several inches of snow here in Brighton, but the sun is shining again. There is further heavy snow forecast for later, so I'll keep you posted. But in the meantime, here are just some of the images from this winter wonderland.
We've gone from this photo (above) taken in my local park in September ...... to this (below) taken just now, while I was walking around the city. The schools are closed, buses cancelled and drivers are sliding around on roads that resemble ice rinks! But it all looks wonderful.
And if you scroll down, you can see what it looked like here before first light.
This is the scene in Preston Park - there are so many people outside enjoying the snowy scenery; children building snowmen and sledging; parents throwing snowballs; and a wonderful sense of joy. People are laughing and enjoying themselves .... it's wonderful what a bit of snow can do to lift the spirits!
