The Beast from the East

On Tuesday the 27th February it began to snow in Cornwall like never before well not at least maybe since the 60s., the Beast from the East, the Siberian storm front arrived with us and brought everything in its path to a flying halt. Mid afternoon the snow fell and fell very heavily and the strangest sight was to see the local birds the gulls, pigeons and jackdaws take to the skies in great confusion probably because they had not experienced it before.

It was mad and quite exciting to walk to our local supermarket Sainsburys a 30 min walk away in a flying bizzard and one that was survived.
