Todays weather was a bit of a surprise – the forecast was for a few inches of snow changing over to rain, and that is what we got this morning. The drive to work was OK and by lunchtime when both Margaret & I headed home, the weather was basically just rain.
We headed out for lunch in Gloucester and while we were there the weather worsened again – suddenly we saw a flash and heard a rumble: a winter thunderstorm! It is called “thunder snow” here and is uncommon.
The weather quickly worsened further to total whiteout – it took us about half an hour to drive the couple of miles back home, and when we finally got there, we discovered that the power was out too! We sat in candlelight and hoped power would be back before the house got too cold … As evening came, power returned and the storm blew away – leaving us with a great sunset!
This evening, noticing how pretty Joanne & Earles christmas lights looked with snow over them, I headed out to take some pictures:
In the morning, we will have some shovelling to do!
