The guys in the met office have got things right and we have woken up to a fair few inches of snow this morning.
The wind was howling last night, and the heating kicked in a few times, so temperatures had dropped as they forecast.
At 8am we could still make out the kerb opposite, and as they are about three inches high, it gives you an idea of true depth.
However, it has been snowing all morning, and the white-out has obliterated the view of the beach flats. An hour and a half later the kerbside has disappeared.
Maggie is feeling the cold despite us putting on her jacket, second waterproof topcoat and fluorescent jacket to provide her with layers to face the chill. The wind is bitter, and she has been sick this morning, so we are keeping her warm and staying indoors.
10 am, the sun is out and the snow has stopped.
