For about 4 weeks we've had snow. That's pretty damn unusual for the UK. My American readers would be very surprised at how much chaos and worry this has caused, given that some parts of the country have only had a few inches of snow (and still people can't get to work and the trains can't run), but that's the UK for you. Some areas have been able to measure their snowfall in feet, but not mine.
With that in mind, and because most of the snow has now gone from my part of Norfolk, I'd thought I'd post some of the prettier pictures.

There you have it. Very pretty, a complete arse to cycle in and very cold.
