Default Tonbridge in the snow!

Just to cheer you all up, it is blowing a blizzard in Kent. If this has worked, there should be a snowy pic taken from my bedroom window at about 10.45ish tonight! Yes, I know lots of places get snow (even in Kent) but Tonbridge always seems to miss out, much to my children's disgust as we now live within walking distance of school . When we lived in Wrotham (a small village just 8 miles away), they missed school every time it snowed!

That photo is beautiful.

I'm just off to slap on the Factor 30 and take to my hammock with a good book!

Thank you - I am just going to take myself off to bed, with book, bedsocks and hot cup of tea (already had a warming glass of port!).
Still I suppose it feels quite Christmassy - in a freezing, cold, trains won't be running, schools will be shut, sort of way!

Taken with my trusty Kodak Easy Share very basic camera. Thank you - I must admit to liking that photo myself

This photo is technically wrong for all sorts of reasons (sorry photo wizards!) but I love it! Taken tonight.

People keep asking me what you miss about UK, and I can honestly put my hand on my heart and say nothing (of course family and friends aren't included in this statement), but now after seeing those lovely snow picture, I now remember I miss the snow. It's typical, the first white christmas in UK for ages and I go and miss it. Have a good snow ball fight for me, have a great and white christmas. 27 degrees here today and very breezy, but still lovely, just not the same as christmas in the snow.

have a good one.

Fantastic. We lived in Hildenborough up till 2005 and hardly got any snow. The tear when everywhere got it inc. T.Wells and Sevenoaks, we had rain!!!!

Well, it hasn't stopped all night. Children have had a text from school saying it's closed. Gatwick shut, roads closed, local buses not running, trains and ferries all delayed by minimum hour and a half!
OH had firm's do in Tunbridge Wells last night. I sent him txt updates saying how bad it was - phoned me at 11.30 to say couldn't get home! Just sent txt to me saying he spent the night in the Ramada in TW. As I had just got back from extended dog walk (dog needs grass to do what dogs do, so very confused dog and longer walk than I was hoping for ).
So, right now 27 deg seems lovely - HOWEVER, I am quite sure that a snowy Christmas will be one of the things I will miss.
Merry Christmas to everyone on here!
