Cherry or Apple Blossom - not sure which but we're not going to enjoy its beauty this year

Blossom

Snow may not be unusual in your part of the world but, believe me, this amount of the stuff is just not the norm here in our part of North Wales.

It started – as predicted by the weather forecasters – just before 10pm on Thursday and didn’t stop until Saturday evening. By then, we had well over 12″ everywhere and drifts almost waist high in places. I know we’ve not had it as bad as many other places in the UK but it’s been quite surprising. Nice to hear about neighbours helping each other out at such times – whole streets of people out clearing the snow so they can get about etc.. We went next door to find that ‘someone‘ had been along and removed the fallen tree for them, chopped it up and taken it away. 🙂

We took photos of this mad Spring weather and I’ll post some here for the record. 🙂  As always, click on a thumbnail for a bigger image and a description.

Good job we've got other doors!

No Exit

Usually stands about 20ft tall, bending under the weight of the snow

Poor tree

I hope the new office roof can stand the added strain

We had to go sweep the trampoline 'cos the weight of the snow was causing it to deform!
