The whole of the UK has been hit with a blizzard. Cold wind from Siberia, now called ‘ The Beast from the East’ has met a weather system coming in from the Atlantic. It has resulted in the worst snowfall for a decade. Conditions in some parts of the country have been pretty bad.
Of course we British love to talk about the weather and it has been the headlines in both the newspapers and on TV. Dire warnings have been issued. Do not travel, stay at home, wear warm clothes. How on earth did we manage in the winters of 1947 and 1963?
Here in Crosby we had just a couple of cm of snow and it did not last very long although it has been very cold. We even had snow on the beach. Too good a photo opportunity to miss.
The Iron Men were not bothered. They just continued to stare out to sea.
