Snow Cannon

Snow Cannon keeps firing

Beast from the East? The Siberian Bear? Well…the Swedes are calling it the Snow Cannon.

And so it continues…although the Breamish Valley has now been downgraded from an amber warning to a yellow warning. So, we’re approaching the end of this highly-unusual severe weather event that’s swept across Europe. Phew!

Photos below are from today (2 Feb 2018)
