Woke this morning to heavy snowfall, as predicted, winds whipping it into swirls of white fog. Everything still and quiet as it always is in these kinds of conditions. No vehicles going down the lane except for the occasional big 4-wheel drive, making slow headway.

Since then the sun has come out and dominated the day, causing some minor thawing on the hedges and trees but still solid underfoot and slippy. We're staying put for the day, though we walked a few yards from our home to take a couple of photographs.
