When people ask what the weather is like here in the winter we usually say that it's quite mild with the odd frost and occasional snow, BUT, the last few days have been really cold, with snow and ice. Yesterday and today there was a covering on the road and garden, and it was still around freezing point at 9:30: the drive was so icy we couldn't get the car out! At least it's been bright and sunny in between the snow showers. We had a walk on Camp Strand on Sunday afternoon, and were treated to sun, snow, and a rainbow on the beach. The ducks, chickens, and sheep are not too impressed with the snow and ice, but Caitlin is loving it!
