Winter Wonderland (East Kent style)

veral inches of snow here yesterday, but overnight another four inches or so. Roads were awful this morning and can't get into the office (oh well). Funny thing is, just a few miles inland there was much less snow. It's usually the other way around. We're right on the coast on a tiny peninsula, so the salt air means snow is pretty rare here. The pictures below show the snow piled high on a table in our back garden. One of the kids measured the depth and it was seven inches.

It really feels Christmassy, so may get out some coloured lights and watch Scrooge tonight (or maybe Where Eagles Dare, with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood taking on the Nazis in the Bavarian Alps, now there's some Christmas viewing). I even trudged to the butcher's to see if he just happened to have a turkey lying about (no such luck, I'm afraid, lamb stew is the best we're going to get).

Merry Christmas!

Cheers, Rudolph! Don't happen to know where I could get a turkey anywhere in the Southeast do you?
