Siberian Bear brings more snow to Breamish Valley

Siberian Bear continues the freeze

What’s in a name?

The UK calls it the Beast form the East. The Dutch call it the ‘Siberian Bear’.

Well…whatever you want to call the current unusual weather conditions that are gripping Europe – it’s certainly cold…and the snow is persistent.
