Awoke on Tuesday morning to find 5 inches of snow had fallen overnight, the heaviest snowfall I've ever seen since I moved to Wilmslow 21 years ago. For once, the weather forecasters had got it spot on.
One of the joys of owning your own business is that you can take the day off no problem. Temperatures were really low and the thermal, waterproof socks and walking boots last deployed at the Women's British Open came in very handy.
A walk to the local shops in the glorious sunshine to get my newspaper and a pint of milk was noticeable for the lack of traffic noise. Never heard it so quiet.
