Whether Persephone forgot her handbag and had to drop back to Hades to get it or whether this is the tail end of the weather that just hit the U.S, this has to be one of the latest snow drops that I can remember. We laughed on Sunday when we saw severe weather warnings flashing on the M1. It was four degrees with a little light rain. Waking this morning to over four inches of the white stuff was a little surprising but not unexpected given it had begun to settle last night and the sky was full of snow.
And so, a few days before Valentines and a day before Shrove Tuesday, this is how things looked at mid-morning.
