This has been a year of wierd weather in England. We have had floods, storms and now snow in southern England. The wind is blowing in off the Baltic and we have the unusual combination of precipitation and cold.
Six inches fell in a night and life has ground to a halt.
The Eurostar has been shut down after an interesting design feature revealed itself. The electrical systems fail when the trains plunge from the cold French countryside into the warm Channel Tunnel. Four trains jammed the tunnel, one after the other.
Above shows the view from my front door. Note that flowers grow outside pretty much all the year round.
The December sun peaks over the horizon.
But not for long.
The holly bush in my back garden.
View from my bedroom window over the Mierscourt Valley estate. Note the palm tree. They grow well here in Kent. We also have vinyards.
Wabbits don't like snow very much.
