Heading down to Exeter this afternoon but only for one night without Lili. Maybe we'll escape the fog by heading south. You can't see far around here either, Trooper. It's supposed to be getting colder and dryer isn't it?

MrsM it's supposed to be getting colder, but I don't know about the Drier bit. 3 hours after I posted about the Fog it's gone, looking quite nice out there now, so hopefully you'll be OK on your travels.
Make the most of it Arceye, Wales without rain, well I never
Well back from out lightning visit to Devon. Friday and early Saturday were pretty wet and miz weather-wise, and there was a big smash, at the junction where the M42 joins the M5 southbound, which closed the two outside lanes for a long time and all lanes of the southbound carriageway for a while on our way down. Thus it took six and a half hours to get from our village school, where we picked Isabella up, to the Travelodge at J30 of the M5. On Saturday we went to Devon Strings in Exeter to get Izzy's new violin, and a truely beautiful instrument it is too! Then after Jon and Becky had given us a wihistle-stop tour of what they do and how they hand make their beautiful violins, violas, mandolins, etc, we had a wander around Exeter city centre. Early in the afternoon, we set off for home. We had decided to head over the Severn Bridge (the newer one) and then head back to Chepstow and up the Wye Valley. The weather was pretty grotty until we crossed the bridge but the drive up from Chepstow to Monmouth was beautiful with the wintery sun glancing off the surface of the river running first on one side, then the other and then back to the first side of the relatively empty road. It wasn't until after we had turned east toward the M50 and back into England that we were once again enshrouded in grey, wet, miserable weather which was to stay with us all the way home. Throughout our time on the M5, both before we crossed the Severn Estuary and again when we left the M50, the overhead gantries reminded that snow had been forecast for the following day, but yesterday the grey wet weather seemed to be at odds with this prediction. However, with a heavy frost over night, and a bright crisp morning and temperatures struggling to reach zero today, the forecast seems somewhat more realistic? MrsM
We had some snow at 2.20 this morning, then it stopped and it started again at 7.30. We now have about a 1/4 of an inch, but it is getting colder. We can't complain as it is winter, it won't be long before it is warm winter most commonly known as spring.
We have had about 4 inches more, I cleared the drive again (3rd time). But we live in a cul-de-sac, and we are the youngest so nobody takes the cars out. The road now has about 7 inches, and the sky looks full of it so we are expecting more.
