Well the promised snow hasn't appeared yet. There are photos on Facebook showing lots of the white stuff in Swindon (about 30 miles away) but here it is raining. There was an attempt at sleet a few minutes ago but now it's back to rain.
I suppose I shouldn't grumble but I was planning to go out and take some photos of the fields covered in snow. Now I'm stuck at home and there is a power cut. Thankfully the house is warm, the phone fully charged and it's cold enough not to panic about the freezer in the garage yet. I just need to finish this post before the (old) laptop battery gives up! It also means that I can't set up the new laptop yet, which is a bit frustrating. If the power doesn't come back on soon I foresee a sudden need to visit friends!
