Snow on Snow on Snow


The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe (2005 film) was on TV last night, and this was the view out of our lounge window - like our own personal Narnia.

While others slept a row of snow men formed on the Market Place (thanks to Elizabeth for this one).
After a night of snow, the snow kept falling through the day...

snow on snow on snow...
I have lived in Abingdon for over 23 years, and up until today we have always looked back on 1987 as the most snowy winter.

But carry on like this and 1987 is gonna get beat. More pictures of the snow and snow creations on tomorrow's blog post.

The previous picture shows town council workmen clearing the Market Place. There were powercuts this afternoon from 4-7 affecting the High Street and the other side of West St Helen Street including the Co-op - but not our side.

And this is the national picture from a Nasa Satellite picture taken at 11.15 am today.

We live just off Ock Street and we also had no power as well - cold tea by candlelight (sounds like a BBC costume drama!) and a very excited son who thought it was all a great adventure!
