Arrived safely at The White Hart Innand enjoyed a tastyfestiveevening meal.After breakfast the following morning, we discovered that the snow was already in retreat from the High Street.
However, the countryside view at the back of the Inn told a very different story.
The roads were mostly clear for the return journey home, unlike the day before.Then weencounteredseveral hazards- apart from snow on the roads, there were some abandoned vehicles and large fallen branches unable to take the weight of the snow.
I don't normally relishsnowy weather, but this wasexceptional for our area, andmuch enhanced bywonderful skies and brilliant sunshine. A pair of cosy boots, warm coat, scarves and gloves found us ready to enjoy a walk.
Back home the Christmas tree in the garden looked lovely. This was a tiny tree when purchased nearly 20 years ago.
The late afternoon sun created a wonderful finale to the day. It lit up the snow and ice covered branches which twinkled likethousands of fairylights.
