Parwich has NO snow!

The snow has pretty well all disappeared! We have been away for a few days for a family wedding in London, and in spite of genuine determination to write posts from the big city itself our time was so happily busy – more of which later – we never got anywhere near a computer.

Anyway, to update everyone on the weather situation: we left on Thursday afternoon, taking the car very gingerly down the lane for the first time since 27th November…! There was still a lot of snow and ice about, and it felt extremely cold. We parked the car on an ice-covered surface at Derby station (which incidentally almost cost more than our fares down and back) hoping things wouldn’t have frozen up completely by the time we returned.

We returned on Sunday evening to find no snow, no ice and the temperature  a relatively warm 5’C or so. However, before any of us start feeling too confident, apparently there is talk of another cold snap – a so-called  ‘Arctic blast’ – with bitterly cold weather and maybe more snow. Keep an eye on the BBC Ashbourne weather.
