Cheviot Hills snow

Cheviot Hills snow: first of Autumn

The first fall of snow on the Cheviots this Autumn happened today (well, overnight really) in the wake of Storm Abigail sweeping across UK. The storm brought gale-force winds and heavy rains that tested the erosion control measures on the River Breamish: also for the first time, as they were constructed just in September of this year. And, of course, we had some snow lying at about 400m and above.

There wasn’t a great deal of snow but it was just enough to make me think that Christmas and the upcoming Christmas Crafts and Santa events will be soon upon us.

What’s not to like about snow, eh? (Unless, perhaps you’ve got places to go and people to see but the snow is up to your knees!)
