Snow

Hi, I have just discovered I have my nephews this weekend is there anywhere within 60 mile radius of Alton that has some snow, that you could sledge in?

Talking about 2-3 inches of snow and everything comes to halt I really love watching the SKY news and BBC news showing how everything turns upside down with this snow.

I even drive my CHRYSLER on summer tires in 5 inches of snow, not pleasent as most American cars are like sledge in snow, but still fun though and challanging.

Enjoye the snow when you can as instead we have sunshine and temperature up to 12 degrees, so spring is in the air.

We've got a sprinkling of snow so far, but it's not really settling. It's just started to try a bit harder though. Off up the Downs later on to see if it's any better

That's "up on to the South Downs" which are the hills running along just north of the coast around here.

There wasn't any snow . . .
