How quickly things can change! I was too sad to post this yesterday, and here ends all mention of snow...some readers will, I know, be relieved!
The thaw came much more quickly than predicted, and there's barely any trace of snow now. Schools are getting back in most parts of the country, although some smaller roads are still quite dangerous.
Today we have gale force winds, some floods and water rationing.
Well, it was good, so good, while it lasted.
And the lesson I've learned is to enjoy stuff in the here and now, cos life has no guarantees. And I'm glad I did!
