The teensiest bit of snow here
We had to meet a friend at Hay-on-Wye on Friday, and as you can see, it was snowy on the way. The roads were fine, and we have had sprinklings of snow at home since, but I tried to capture a few snowscenes to share. Above is the Sugarloaf, which can be climbed from Abergavenny (about a 9 mile round walk and quite a steep climb).
Above and below: snowy fields seen from the main Brecon to Hereford Road, just outside of Brecon.
These last three are the Brecon Beacons of course, taken when we pulled into the layby on our way down into Brecon to do some grocery shopping in Morrisons. It has been pretty cold the last week and into this one, and we had sleet flurries this afternoon, and hailstones during last night, but nothing has really settled (though the hailstones did get frozen in place on the fields and our cars).
Apparently we are due more of the stuff due to a Polar Vortex happening . . . we get the cold weather bunged our way!
