Little snow here. Some schools closed including my girls' (but not my boy's). So I'm working at home again.
I've now run out of coffee and chocolate biscuits. Caught up on all my emails, planned my training for the year. Dinner is in the slow cooker, the washing is all done.

And here. Can't get out to work and the delivery I was expecting for a job obviously isn't going to come so I'm doing all the stuff connected to the band that I don't really get the time to do otherwise. Major application for a Breton festival completed and submitted, band Facebook and Soundcloud pages done, website now undergoing updates.

Still need this snow gone though.....

One other phenomenon that has come with this weather, might be a coastal thing - most of our windows have a slightly smoked/tinted look - it's on the outside surface and appears to be a layer of dust or fine sand.

No snow here today, in fact we've had on/off sunshine.

Snowing here again as forecast, flakes aren't big, but the roads are getting covered again.

We didn't have any more snow overnight however woke up this morning to find a very fine drizzle falling. This hit the ground (or road, or anything else for that matter) and instantly froze. The lane outside my house was so slick you couldn't even walk on it. Unbelievably people were still going out in their cars and then wondering why they ended up in the ditch. I must now officially be a grumpy old git as I have absolutely no sympathy for these individuals whatsoever, in fact I'm running out of patience with society in general!

I'm the same officially grumpy. But it's because you use something that's rare, it's called common sense.

I do think the media in particular set a very bad example by always sending out reporters and doing live broadcasts. Folk are just going to think, it must be alright the BBC are out and about. So much for their risk assessments.

This is despite your former colleagues telling people only to travel it's ABSOLUTELY necessary. BBC's Robert Hall was one of the stranded motorists on the A303, just adding to the choas.

He wasn't the only one.

It's a pet hate.

Heading out with a couple of friend in their 4x4 to get into town for supplies for ourselves and a few people in the village. This is the road out - 4 miles of it.

Looking back.

The road west out of the village, going over the top.
