Snow fell all afternoon, and into the evening Monday 21 December 2009. The following day I took the camera out as the sun tried to break through the clouds.
This is more snow than I had (but see below) previously experienced here in Basingstoke.
Snow weighing heavily on trees
That snowman is not hiding very well.
The sun finally begins to break through.
Enough snow to cause the branches to significant bow down and reduce space to walk along this path.
Snow fell from Tuesday evening, all through Wednesday until pretty much twenty four hours since it started. This left something like eight inches of soft snow. Except where it has been compressed (car tracks, feet) and started to turn to ice.
So what seemed record snow a fortnight ago, suddenly doesn't seem so much anymore.
At least today was sunny, unfortunately it was colder, not breaking 0°C.

Nice collection of icicles.
Looking straight up.
Icicle from my balcony. Just before knocking it off to avoid overloading the guttering.
