It was my birthday yesterday and I woke up to snow. As far as I remember it hasn't ever snowed on my birthday (and I have had quite a few birthdays!), this cold winter seems to be continuing well into spring. Luckily for us this was almost as much as we got, I know that people further north are suffering very heavy snow falls and lack of power.
We delayed travelling to pick up youngest son from university because it was snowing quite heavily first thing in the morning and there were lane closures due to snow on our route. By late morning road conditions had improved and we were able to make the trip so I got to have a birthday meal with all my family after all.
Today there is only a little snow left in the garden but the forecast is for low temperatures all week. British summer time starts next weekend, hopefully the weather will be a bit warmer by then.
