Yesterday here in mid France we had temperatures of 10° and sunshine; I telephone my daughters in England and they were buried under thick snow--how I chuckled. BUT this morning soon wiped the smile from my face , I looked out of the window and it was snowing and below freezing , what a contrast in less than 24 hours! When I got over the surprise I donned hat and gloves and became a child again--why does snow always do that to people? I took a couple of pics too one which is here. England is getting it pretty bad, apparently 800 flights were cancelled in London yesterday, and today doesn't look much better for the travellers. Sky News Active is putting up photos sent in by viewers and I noted that one family have acually built a real Igloo in their back garden, now THAT is dedication! To all those who are snowed in, ENJOY before it turns to slush. I will be back later to continue with my story and the first Chateau which we decided to buy. It had 80 rooms!
