The snow hadn't actually been forecast and it came early in the morning and settled on the roads which were already wet/icy so black ice was the biggest problem. We passed crashed vehicles and some that simply couldn't get a grip and make it up hills. There was a 10 car pile-up just minutes from where we live although we didn't witness that and thankfully there were no injuries (just a few dented cars).
Rain came by lunchtime and most of the snow cleared by mid afternoon although its still very cold.
Some pictures taken of our first Winter Snow. Didn't realise I'd left the camera set to Monochrome ... but I think it looks quite atmospheric really

Me taking photos out of the car window :-)
Back to colour once I realised I'd got the wrong camera settings. Stuck in a jam waiting for cars at front to get up the hill, or be pushed to one side by volunteers trying to keep traffic flowing.
Can't wait to see what happens when we get 'proper' snow!!
OK ... back to work now. I'm waiting for my client to come and collect the Spaniel portrait today. She lives fairly close and has to time the collection so her husband doesn't become suspicious.
So I'm working on a horse pastel whilst waiting. I haven't got very good ref photos of the 'favourite pose' so he's being drawn using a selection of pictures so I'm building a composite almost.
