Well the meteorological terrorists have got it right as far as Hutton and Paxton is concerned. Timing perfect between Christmas and Hogmanay as no one from our Council has bothered to grit the roads so getting to Paxton is a struggle never mind the real world as represented by Sir Morrisons in remote and virtually cut off Berwick. And the terrorists are rubbing salt into wounds(probably borrowed from Scottish Borders Council who have not put any on the roads, but to be fair may have used their stock on their turkeys ) by referring to driving conditions as being 'atrocious'-carefully not specifying where so they are certain to get it right someplace. Anyhow the garden is looking very seasonal and freezing fog is keeping the visibility down. The two images of the back garden were taken 4 hours apart so the snow has been prolific.
