February, 2012 – Graham Miln

First Snow

It started with a little flurry of flakes that were barely visible through the windows. Within a few hours the snow had started falling continuously. The size of the snow flakes varied during those first few hours but settled as the evening drew in.

This is the first significant snow fall we have seen since arriving in Europe and it is exciting. Megan in particular was delighted to be able to walk out into the town and experience freshly falling snow; growing up in Australia limits your exposure to snow.

The weather forecast suggests the snow will not last. Sleet is on the way and the snow is likely to be washed away. Until then the world outside has a magical feel to it.
